Because those are some really big feelings. And then people will feel guilt because they feel that way. Right? It's like I'm supposed to just unconditionally love my child. I have a lot of parents that when I give them permission or I voice in the room that it's possible you might not like your child, then, you know, they'll just erupt sobbing because it's true. And they've held that in and it's embarrassing and they feel terrible. But it's true. They love their child, but they don't always like their child.
