“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
― Marilyn Monroe

Dear Parents,

Sometimes your kids will hate you.

And their words will really hurt.

You’ll never feel a pain like this

When they value you less than dirt

Don’t let their poison get to you

Don’t let their words get in your head

Don’t listen to their angry words

When they wish that you were dead

Value the days when they are children

When they don’t know how to hate

Love the days when they believe in cooties

And don’t worry about their weight

Being a parent is hard

Being a good parent is harder

When he’s grown, protect him

And when she’s grown, guard her
