A momentary feeling of regret having children is normal and natural when a mom or dad is feeling overwhelmed, helpless or stressed.

While many may find it hard to admit, but it is perfectly natural for moms to feel an occasional tinge of momentary regret about having children, especially when she’s overwhelmed, exhausted, in a power-struggle with her child, or particularly if she’s a single mom.
