are you a slave to your children

It’s easy to get locked into the habit of doing too much for your children. You love them dearly, would do anything for them when it comes right down to it. Of course when they were babies you didn’t mind doing everything for them. After all, they couldn’t do anything for themselves, so you had no choice.
Ten years later, however, after picking up your daughter’s shoes (left in the living room for the 27th time), you’ve probably lost that warm bubbly feeling inside. Instead, you find yourself fuming, feeling like you’ve been taken advantage of.
