Calm down, she's just 8. Once she does move out you'll probably wish she was back. Let's hope she doesn't see hear about this FML when she IS 18.

I completely agree #2. I wish that I could get a break from my kids sometimes when I'm stressed out. Then, when they spend time with their dad or my family, I miss them and can't wait for them to get home. OP should be careful what he/she wishes for.

Yeah that's sad to think that way ! Seriously OP ? Plus there's a chance out of ten that she leaves when she's 18 ! Although I don't know how it goes in the USA, usually children have to wait until they 20/22 or so to have the possibility to leave the house ! But wow why did you have children in the first place if you just want them to leave the house.. That's terrible..

I am a firm believe that if OP doesn't like her 8 year old, its probably due to OP's bad parenting. I mean what kind of parent says crap like this??

I'm with 134. I am 19 and still live at home. Most 18 year olds that I know still live at home. Getting a paying job at 16/17 isn't easy. I'm trying hard to find one.

Harsh OP. Gotta learn to spend every last minute with your child. Your going to terribly miss her when she goes to college man.

Agreed! My oldest just turned 12...and I keep asking myself, where did the time go. I used to want him to get older and more independent but now, I just want him to be my baby again...Instead he's too cool for mom -_-

My son is only 9.5 months old but he's already getting very independent, I wish he wouldn't grow up so fast.. He was more cuddly when he was smaller and less mobile.

8 is a crazy age anyways, they're growing up and testing the boundaries. just wait it out and I'm sure you'll change your mind.

From every parent I have talked to the time they miss the most is the 6-12 because they actually want to hang out with the parentals. Whereas before that they dont know how to empathise and thats a pain in the arse, and after well you know parents are suddenly the uncoolest thing in the world. Then they grow up move out and are only seen at family occasions. There are exceptions to this rule of course but what I mean is OP treasure your time with your kid becauuse chances are you will look back

according to the court house where I'm from if ops daughter is a resident of there she has to go to a court house submit an application for eviction give her daughter the notice and 2 weeks later the police can escort her out. its a lengthy process

In Texas, you have to serve them with an eviction notice 30 days prior and they can contest it, even if they blood related, have only lived there a week and don't pay rent...I thought it was odd because I'd previously assumed that only tenants require an eviction notice...erm nope.

Seriously? I hope you don't let your daughter know how you feel, how awful for her. I don't understand why some people have children when they just get angry and frustrated with them all the time... Kids are a product of their environment.

Do you have kids? They're exhausting. They need all the time and are constantly pushing your buttons and testing your patience, no matter how well you raise them.Just because OP expresses some frustration doesn't mean she doesn't love her daughter. Hang in there, OP, and prepare for worse--you'll have a teenage daughter soon. But it's all worth it.

I used to know a family where the dad and step mom had a habit of kicking his kids out around when they were 15. All 4 of them. It was like he couldn't handle parenting. Now he has two small boys with the new mom and I just can't help but think why? Why would someone who can't handle ANY of his kids want to make more. It's just irresponsible. I sometimes wonder if he'll kick them out when they get older. Just sad.

26, it also says she's 21 so it's unlikely her child(ren) is over the age of 5. It gets more demanding as time goes on. I don't think OP feels this way all the time, but any parent who's honest with his/herself has to admit there are times you just need a break. I think OP is having one of those days and here are people telling her she doesn't deserve to have children.

Reply

Yes my child may be under the age of 5 but that doesn't mean he isn't demanding and a handful at times. I never resent him, my partner and I chose to become parents so we owe our child a life of love, patience and respect. To imply that children get more difficult as they get older is ridiculous. It's extremely hard becoming a parent for the first time and raising a baby. They don't come with an instruction booklet. One would assume that by the time their child is 8 they have had years of rai

Reply

36 I totally agree. I know I'll probably get hate for this but I've basically decided to personally never have children because I don't feel I would be patient and selfless enough to be a great mum and I'd rather have no children than have children and resent them like OP does. Okay you can vote me down for being a selfish bitch now..?

Reply

49, I feel the same way. I don't want my life to change as drastically as it would if I were to have a kid. So instead, I have my fur kids. I think it would be more selfish to bring a child you didn't truly want into the world.

28, My dad's sort of like that. He gives up on his sons once they turn 13 and his daughters at 10. After that he treats us like shit. I mean, he treats us like shit before then, but he always pretended to be sorry. Once I turned ten all hell broke loose. Why? Because he doesn't want to deal with puberty. He wanted little kids who he could beat up and not get hit in return, once we got old enough to defend ourselves, his job as a parent was done.

I'm a mom of a one and a half year old. I have my days where a miss the freedom of being childless, but most days i love being a mom. If this was a momentary fleeting thought on a rough day, then that happens. If its something you think about every single day then you probably shouldnt have had children in the first place.

Reply

I agree with you! I have 8 brothers, 7 sisters and 3 kids 8-19 years. We all grew up with rules in the house that we followed... There was no pushing boundaries or back talking and I raise my kids the same. I'm not near as exhausted and annoyed as my friends are with their families. I can understand why people are so fed up that can't wait for their kids to move out.. News flash... It's not the kids.

Reply

36, you are full of shit. Seriously? If you don't have an 8 year old, you don't know what you're talking about. You're still a baby, and really need to stfu.

Reply

Im the same way! I refuse to have kids because i know i wouldnt be a good mother. At least i admit it. If you're going to have a kid, you need to commit 18+ years of love to it. And of course they'll Live longer than that. Just.. This post makes me remember i hate people
