I read a post today called “Bubble Parents”, great post! She put her daughter in a bubble and now can’t get her out. Have a wee read.
Having kids is frightening, even scarier is giving them the independence they need to be functioning adults.
You think giving birth is scary? Try watching your grandchild be born.
You think letting them go to the park is scary? Try letting them go to England.
You think the first day of school is scary? Try the first day of college.
You think teaching them to ride a bike is scary? Get in the passenger seat while they learn to drive.
You think letting them walk to school is scary? Hand over some car keys.
You think letting them play outside is scary? Try letting them go to Vegas.
You think letting them use the stove is scary? It is, I have nothing on this one.
You think their first job is scary? My kid used to use a saw to cut liver.
You think kids are scary? No, adults, adults are scary!!!!
