I am an overprotective mum at times who probably needs to chill. Somehow I missed out the being panicky about my baby and toddler but think I am making up with it with my teenager. Think this is in part due to the lack of extended family I have around and lack of experience me and my friends generally have with kids.
Mad thing is I have spent most of the last decade working with teenagers, I know what they do / don’t do. However, I think this is part of the problem. I know all too well where some paths can lead…..and tend to think worst possible outcome and cause when it comes to my own offspring.
I need to hold onto the truth of Kevin and just remind myself of it every so often, so I remember what is normal in my situation
