    Mental illness- either having it yourself, or living with someone who has it

    Being a parent

    Being a nanny

    Being with someone who doesn't "want" you

    Being a separated parent

    Being a step-parent

    Addiction- like you can understand it, but not 'know', IYKWIM

    Fussy eaters- not "my kids doesn't like xyz" but "my kid won't eat"

    Being a step-parent who parents more than the parents...

    Mental illness and addiction. Even if you have been through it you can not understand what someone else is feeling because both of those effect people differently. Quote "if I can do it anyone can".

    Having a adult child with a mental.or physical illness. That just because they are your child you can't make them so what you want. They are still adults and have their own life and make their own decisions.

    Default What do you need to experience to truly understand?

    Losing a child: no-one can possibly understand the pain and grief involved unless they've lost a child. And in this situation, I'm specifically referring to losing a child, not a miscarriage. I have three miscarriages and I was sad about losing our unborn children, but the pain of our five and a half year old daughter dying, is insurmountable.

    Parenting a child with special needs.

    Being a step-parent
