This is exactly how I feel right now. I feel awful about teaching B a hard lesson about meaningless apologies and how one should always mean it when they say sorry. It broke my heart to see him cry when I did the lesson but I had to do it.
It's so hard being a Mom and a Dad. I need to be loving and caring but at the same time, I need to be firm and strong when making decisions. It tugs at my heart. :(
I wish B will realize that this is all for him. I hope he knows that in spite and despite the hard lessons I teach him, its all out of love for him.
