It cuts a mama right to the heart to hear one of her children say "I hate you!" to a sibling. But what do our children actually mean when they say that? Is it the death of a loving relationship? And how can you, as a parent, respond wisely when your child is dealing with strong emotions like anger and fear?

I've got an analogy that I think will give you a good picture of what your role is as a mother and loving guide in this situation. And I'll share something I realized about myself that gave me some insight into my children's emotions and needs.
