There's absolutely no such thing as the perfect parent, and one brave mom recently decided to prove this by writing a very honest open letter about raising her 3 children.

Read on to see what she had to say, and why it's divided opinions...

As all of us parents can agree...

Raising our children certainly isn't all fun and games.

Of course, raising our kids is a magical and wonderful experience...

But there's no doubt that, at times, it can often get very tough.

There's the crying, the screaming...

And not to mention the tantrums and the arguing.

It's all very exhausting...

And this leads to many parents losing their temper with their children's non-stop bad behavior.

Of course, it's easy to occasionally snap when it comes to our kids...

But one mom has seriously divided the internet with her brutal comments about her children, especially when she called them "a**holes" and said that reading them stories makes her want to "gouge her eyes out."

Yet, on the other hand, some parents laughed at the mom's comments and found them "very relatable."

So, who exactly is the mom who caused all of the controversy?

This is thirty-three-year-old Laura Mazza, and she is a mom of 3 from Melbourne, Australia.

Laura uses her Instagram account to share the realities of parenting with her 36.9K followers...

And she often documents the ins and outs of raising 6-year-old Luca, 4-year-old Sofia, and 2-year-old James.

Last week, amongst her usual chaotic Instagram posts depicting the life of a hand's on mom, Laura shared an open letter to other busy parents.

She started by writing alongside an exhausting looking snap of herself trying to clean up after her kids: "I just want you to know that if you are my friend, you can say 'my kids were a**holes today' without one look of judgment from me. You should feel free to be able to say 'I want to run away today.' Without any pearl-clutching."

She then acknowledged that she knows she "complains a lot about parenting."

"That is because raising children the hardest most physically and emotionally impossible thing I’ve ever done. Every day is new uncharted water. I broke up fights today, got frustrated today, raised my voice today, cried, consoled crying, felt guilty, felt happy, felt loved, gave love. All in less than twenty-four hours."

"It’s hard. It’s hard for all of us."

"We wonder if we f****** it up all the time," she then pondered. "So why not just be honest about it? Why not have the freedom to say 'I just cannot be f***** with dinner tonight' and the thought of reading with my kids makes me want to gouge my eyes out. I want you to know that with me, you can say that and I’ll never think you don’t love your kids or you’re unappreciative."

Laura wants other moms and dads to stop pretending they're perfect.

"Screw all the perfectionist attitudes, and the 'oh my children are blessings 24/7' grateful optimism. It doesn’t mean we don’t love our children, it doesn’t mean we aren’t grateful - but we are allowed to vent. Because you know what’s even harder than raising children?"

Just because she vents and complains some days...

Doesn't at all mean that she doesn't love her children.

Parenting is unbelievably hard...

And all Laura has done is outline the realities that every parent lives through every single day.
