In the heat of the moment a lot of us mums can say things to our little ones that we instantly regret.
And no matter how sorry we say we are or how much we much we wish we could take it back, words can cut deep, especially when you’re a young child.
Blogger The Unmumsy Mum received a letter from another mum who had been handed it by her own child.
Taking to Facebook, the blogger explained how nine-year-old Ellie had refused to tidy her room and when her mum got mad she wrote her a letter that, to be honest, has broken all of our hearts.
Thankfully, all hearts have been mended but this was certainly an eye-opener for the rets of us parents.
Kids really do know how to make you feel guilty, don't they?!
