Okay, so I am new to this.  I have an 18 year old daughter who just graduated from high school and will be leaving for her college soccer summer program in 3 days.  Her college is only an hour a way, but she will be living off campus about a block away from the school from now on.  Granted she may come home on weekends, but I’m not sure how to feel yet.  It’s kind of wierd knowing that she won’t be living here 4 days out of the week.  But hey, she’s an adult now and she needs to start acting and living like one.  The little birdie needs to leave the nest!  She’s a pretty mature 18 year old, so I think she’ll be okay.

    • It’s growing up and I know it’s hard but trust me she will be fine - just scary times for us Mum’s .....

      You’ll find a lot of support on Fab40 as lots of women on here have been or going through exactly the same issue  

      Keep us posted

    • I’m sure your daughter will be fine.  She’ll be playing a sport she loves and making new friends.  You’ll be missing her a lot and will have to make a big change in your family dynamic.  You can do it though.  We’ll all be supporting you and you can help me through it when my turn comes (4 short years). I am wishing you the best.
