Ah, relationships: both the bitter and sweet of life, am I right? The category of Relationships features articles to guide you through every relationship of life — the difficult and delightful  — as well as how to navigate relationships with in-laws, grandparents, friendships, marriage, ex-spouses, kids, teens, and more. 

Fort Worth Moms publishes original, personal stories and advice from local moms, as well as relevant and fun information for those of us in the trenches of parenthood. 

Every article published via Fort Worth Moms — whether someone from our in-house team, a guest writer, or a sponsored writer — uses their words to reflect their own opinions, experiences, and beliefs. No singular post or collection of posts represents the opinions, beliefs, or agenda of Fort Worth Moms.

It took me a long time to use the word abuse. It felt like such a severe word for an occasional behavior. Even once I started to name the behavior, it still felt strong on my tongue, like maybe I was making it up or exaggerating things in my mind.
I know you understand. But I still feel the need to explain. This season of life is demanding. I have young children. They have not learned how to tie their own shoes, make their own sandwiches, or fill their own milk cups. So from the moment I wake up until the time I go to bed, my time is spoken for.
