Mother Feels Disturbed By Daughter's Personality & Cannot "Stand To Be Around Her"

The mother of three said that she adored her other kids though they threw tantrums.

Parenting can be frustrating but does that make a father or a mother dislike their child? One mother answered this question by admitting that she could not bear to be around one of her children because of their personality. 

According to Mirror Online, the mother revealed that she does not like her eldest daughter "95 percent of the time." She also added that she could not "stand to be around her." 

Identifying her under the alias, Lilly, the mother of three stated, "Now, don’t be confused with my dislike for Lilly with not loving her because that is not the case; I do love her. She is my child and she could do anything, and I would still love her, I just don’t like her and there is a difference."

Speaking of her other two kids, the mother stated, "My son and my younger daughter are not perfect, they challenge me at times, throw tantrums, have their faults - but I still adore them. I like spending time with them, I like who they are, I like them," according to Kidspot

The mother further explained that she was disturbed by the personality of her 9-year-old. "It is Lilly’s personality, who she is, and how she behaves that I don’t like. She is sullen, selfish, bratty, and creates drama constantly. She does it at school, at home, in her netball club and refuses to admit her faults, or work on them, or listen to why she has annoyed someone or upset them," said the mother, who remained anonymous.

She added that her attempts to correct her daughter's attitude rarely succeeded. As a result, she often ended up being frustrated with the young girl. It motivated the mother to avoid the girl at "all costs." 

Consequently, the mother handed the responsibility of looking after Lilly to her husband. While she has taken a back seat, her husband takes the young girl to sports games, birthday parties and even helps her with her homework.

Prior to completely giving up on her daughter, the mother stated that she had tried spending quality time with Lilly, hoping it would allow her to see "a redeeming quality or even an issue that was causing some of the behavior that could be resolved."

Unfortunately, it did not result in any positive change. 

Though the mother has given up on parenting Lilly for the time being, she hopes to see her change and guide her in the future.
