Mummy is this love?

Learn to speak up when being hurt

Your thoughts (250)

Dear Mummy,

I watch my friends with their mothers. They are not like you and me. They say every mother loves her child. Is it love when you beat me and call me names?

I have a scar from when you hit me with a wooden spoon because I added too much salt to the rice. It seems like you hit me all the time.

You call me slow, stupid, useless. You always tell me I will end up a failure with the way I am going.

My friends are not scared of their mothers. Not the way I am scared of you.

They talk freely with mothers. I can’t because you always say I ask childish questions.

You say you treat me this way because you don’t want me to go down a bad path. You say you only discipline me because you love me.

Sister said what you are doing is called verbal and physical abuse. She said no one should treat a child this way. She said you should treat the people you love with kindness.

Mummy is she correct? Or does she not love me as much as you do?

Mummy is this love? When I have my own children, is this how I should treat them? I don’t think so. I will correct my children gently. I will always speak to them kindly.

I hope this letter will help you to see how I am feeling. I hope it will make it easier for me to talk to you

All my love, Your daughter

Hey Grace! Thanks a lot for this comment. Mums have different ways of showing love to their children. Even when we feel uncomfortable with the way they treat us, just know that it is just out of love. We are glad you realize that your mum is doing everything out of love.

Hey Banky! Have you tried expressing your feelings to your mum? Please talk to her and tell her how you feel. She is probably not aware that she is ignoring you. If you do not feel comfortable talking to her, tell someone you trust that is close to your mum to help you talk to her. We hope this helps.

Hey Olami! Thanks for the comment. It is the fear you have that makes it difficult for you to talk to your mum. Have you tried talking to your mum and telling her about your fears? We are sure you are even more scared to open up to her but keeping this to yourself may not help either. If you cannot talk to her, write a letter to her or better still, tell a relative you trust (and that is close to her) to help you talk to your mum. We hope this helps

Yea u have a point there

Hey Katherina! Yes, she may get upset if you tell her but not telling her will not do any good either because if she doesn't know, there will be no room for change. Tell her when she is in a good mood and do not tell her when you are angry also. Telling her will make a difference because she will know how she treats you and how it is affecting you. We hope this helps.

Well like you said not all mothers are like that ,but just keep praying about your bad "situation" for a better "solution"

Hey Springster! Have you tried talking to your mum first? Assuming that something will go wrong if you open up to your mum may not be true. If you can't tell her to her face, try writing a letter to her so that she knows how you feel. You can also tell a trusted adult that is close to your mum to help you talk to her. Keeping quiet is not any better because that way, your mum will not know how you feel. We wish you all the best and we hope this helps.

Your mum loves you that's why she spanks you to correct you so you won't make a mistake like that and embarrass yourself in public or company. If you don't believe have a talk with your mum or let her know she hurt you or just make sure you always do things right so she won't spank you. Any which mum is love😄❤️❤️❤️❤️

Hey Marfer! Thanks for opening up through this comment. It happens. You do not feel comfortable sharing personal things/issues with others. Opening up here is a good start. It means you are willing to make a move. You can start writing in your diary but remember that your diary won't be able to advise you when you need one but it will sure help you to get things off your mind and you will feel good after writing in your diary. The next thing you need to do is to find a trusted adult that you can talk to when you need advise. Be sure to look for someone that won't judge you. We hope this helps.

Hey Pearl_Martins01! Maybe you feel she will judge you that is why you have not opened up to her fully. It may take a while but just try. Start by randomly talking about boys that you are friends with then gradually start talking about love. You can also ask her for advice on what to do. We hope this helps.

Hey Bimmy! Wow! We are so sorry about this and we can only imagine what you are going through. Does your mum know how she makes you feel? If she doesn't, please let her know.

Hey Tharry! Sincere apologies for the delayed response. We are so sorry for what you are going through with your parents. Have you tried talking to them about it? Tell them how their quarrels make you feel. Make them understand how much you will love it for them to get along. Try to be very calm and not rude when you tell them okay? We wish you all the best.

Hey Farha! Awwww… you can be close to your mum. All you need to do is to talk to her. You can start by talking about random things i.e. school, friends, things you like etc. You can also ask her about her day and also her interests. It can be easy when you both talk about things that interest you. This is a starting point on being close to your mum. We wish you all the best and we hope this helps.

wow thank god formy mother she is like a helper she everything about me and d only one i can tell everything

Most children especially the girls are ill treated by their parents. Mostly because they are not happy with the gender of the child. They feel girls are worthless, liability and a waste of resources. But is that really true? Any child be it a boy or girl was created for a definite purpose. To make the child reach these heights, she has to be guided and shown love by the parents and guardians. We must stop girl child abuse! Be it physical, sexual, verbal or emotional. Enough is enough!!!

Oh Jummy! We are so sorry about what you are going through with your mum. We understand how sad and painful it can be. The truth is that your mum loves you but you both just do not how to build your relationship with each other. Wipe your tears girl. What you should do is to talk to your mum about this and let her know how you feel. If you cannot tell her to her face, you can write a letter or send a text to her. You will be surprised that she doesn't know how bad this is for you. You can also talk to a trusted adult to help you talk to your mum. Trust me, everything will be fine eventually but you need to let her know about it. Once again, we are so sorry about this and we hope this helps

Sincerely.. I went through this same issue. My mum called me names. beat me up... hit my head on the wall... kicked me to the floor. She made me feel very inferior. When i stammer instead of helping me she mocked me and i usually cried bitterly. That's the reason i cant talk to my mum.. I dont tell her things.. i keep it to myself or share my problems with my sister or friends outside. Some Parents have failed in training.. I will treat my children with love cos i know how bad i felt. Thanks.

Hey Peace! Thanks for the comment. We are so sorry about what you went through with your mum. We understand the hurt you feel and we are so glad that you have a better understanding on how to deal and handle with your kids in the nearest future. Also, we advise that you talk to your mum about this too. Let her know how you feel. Do not judge or fight her but just express yourself the best way you can to her. We hope this helps

I can actually relate to this. It's one of the reasons why I find it difficult to talk to her. I prefer confiding in my best friend even when she doesn't know what to do about whatever issue I have. At least I know she has my back. My mom has hit me so many times all in the name of correction. It's normal for parents to try to correct us but not to the extent where we become distant. I still haven't had the period talk with her. She obviously didn't know she had to tell me about periods. Thank goodness I was 14

March 20, 2022, 7:54 p.m.

Im going through hell right now because of my aunt, i totally keep distance from her because of the way she treats me all in the name of correction. She call me names,beats me and says i can never do anything right. I miss my loving grandma soo much, even if she shouts at me she can never lay a finger on me, she always make me laugh and we always have good times Together. Whenever my aunts shout at me i always remember the things me and my mom shares in common (may her soul rest in peace). Because of her I've turned from "the best student in class" to "the dumpest student". I regret ever coming to stay with her.

Hi everyone. I'm new here.

Your mother loves you. She treated you in this way probably because she doesn't want to get spoiled. She is afraid, maybe, if she treats you softly she may end up doting on you and as a result you become spoiled. look at yourself. do you really behave the way your mum says you behave? Are you really slow? Ask yourself these questions and find the answers yourself. Ask someone to notice the way you act and ask them the same questions. if the answers are in affirmative, then, try to adjust.
