Octomom Nadya Suleman recently told In Touch Magazine that she “hates her kids”. WHAT?!?! Yep, you heard it right. However, you should not always believe what you hear. Why? Keep reading and we will tell you.
Mom’s everywhere know that life as a mom can be very stressful. Raising one kid can be tough, but raising 14, 8 of which are just 2 years old, can drive even the most patient person into insanity. Octomom Nadya Suleman is reported to say, “I hate babies, they disgust me.” She went on, “My older six are animals, getting more and more out of control, because I have no time to properly discipline them.”
Most people are reading this article and thinking that she asked for it. That she should have given the kids up for adoption. That she should STILL give the kids up for adoption…and maybe she should. That too is much easier said than done. Fact are kids are hard. Two year old’s are not referred to as “the terrible twos” for nothing, and 10 year old kids have problems with their own. If Nadya really hated her kids she would have dropped them off somewhere by now. While she claims that she “sits in the bathroom and cries”, and she probably does, there are probably a lot of good times too. A lot of laughs and sweet moments.
We think that the Octomom needs someone like Supernanny to come live with her for a while. Teach her how to control 14 kids, teach the kids how to be kids while still be helpful, and give her a hand. She has had financial help that has bailed her out of messes, but has she ever had real training to successfully parent all 14 kids?
So just because she says she hates her kids, she doesn’t mean it. That is just the stress of parenting and being alone talking. There are probably times when she doesn’t like a kid, or like how the kid is behaving, but what the world has seen time and time again, since the babies were born, is that Nadya loves her kids. We think right now she is just a little lost lamb, trying to dig herself out of a grave and instead falling deeper in.
