I'm late to the game, and this is going to be a bit of a tl;dr reply. But here goes!
I hate the way every mother gets a guilt trip every time there's a tragedy involving the death of children. You know, those heart-wrenching "I wanted to yell at my kid for leaving his socks on the floor again but then I remembered the kids who died and I hugged him instead" things that go around. Excuse me for being crass, but how does that tragedy have anything to do with how I typically raise my children? I could go on and on about this, but let me just use one or two examples:
YES, I do get mad when my daughter makes a huge mess, and if I were to go around cleaning all of her messes all of the time (as it is I clean half of them) I would be in constant back and hip pain and she would never learn how to clean her own messes. So yes, I make her clean up her messes and will continue to do so, and if she cries then too bad. I'm not going to suddenly make my daughter stop cleaning her messes because she could die at any moment and I'll feel guilty about making her cry. I'm going to thank her and give her a hug when she's done and feel the gratification of knowing I'm raising her into a responsible person who will function well as an adult.
YES, I get frustrated when my toddler throws all of my folded laundry onto the floor every time, without fail, as soon as I turn my back. Or when she continually crumples or rips important papers, or cries incessantly while I scramble to figure out what's wrong. If I have to put her in her playpen or crib for a while so I can cool down and put things right again, or grab the Orajel, or whatever, I shouldn't have to feel guilty about it. I need a break, and sometimes that is going to make my toddler cry. But we're both better off if I do what I need to do because it means I'm not going to lash out at her in my anger. And when I come back for her, I am going to give her a kiss and a hug and make her happy again.
So do me a favor, people who are circulating the "OMG I'll never yell at my kid again and I will hug them forever!" crap. STOP IT. You're guilt-mongering. You're encouraging parents to interrupt their normal care routines and the disciplinary techniques that will help their children grow in responsibility just so their kids never have to "suffer" in case they die early. Just because a parent doesn't coddle their kid doesn't mean they don't appreciate their kid, there's a world of difference. It's nonsensical and I, for one, don't appreciate it.
