My mother never

My mother never hugged me growing up. I would run to her arms and she would push me away. What causes a mother to reject their children? I don’t do this to my children. I have a cousin that thinks because I was my father’s favorite. Could she have been jealous?

Same sex relationships between parents and children usually dont go too well. That’s why you see sons closer with their mothers, and daughters closer with their fathers.

Dont beat yourself up about it @Cici2

That’s great she’s apologized! It sounds like she had her own issues. It was a reflection of who you were. It’s nit your fault. It was an injustice, and you needed more. So glad you give and receive hugs to your kids now!

I don’t know how a mother could do that but it happens quite a lot. I’m sorry you endured that. How awful.
