    • tongue out do you remember the exact moment your teen showed you, you weren’t needed now? I do. Lol it happened today as my hubby and I dropped our 14 year old daughter off at camp. After ck in walked her to her cabin and after 3minutes as I was planning on helping her she said “okay mom you can go I got it. ”
      WOW! first time at camp so I expected she’d want us around a little longer. ..maybe say 5, 6, pushing for 7 minutes.  LOL well it had to be sooner or later, I just wanted later. She’s my baby and it looks like my baby is growing up. (I thought we had a deal to stay 6 for awhile. ) :) a very good relaxation but hard still. estaticheartheart

        • She is about the right age for wanting a bit of independence from mom and dad.

        • my daughter has always wanted to do her own thing even as a young child.  allowing this and maintaining parent limits has at times been trying.  i will always be her mum and hopefully she will see me as one of her first choices when asking lifes hard questions or apprehensions in her life.  i do not feel redundant and hope what she learns from our family and the outside world will help her in her life choicesestaticheartheart
