I took my son to the water park yesterday. I remind you he is only 20 months. I was the only mother out of probably 20 moms actually in the water with my child. Everyone else sat on the sidelines watching there little children play in the water. One mom was texting when her son fell and scraped his knee. It took her 3 mins. to even realize it was her child that was crying. He couldn't have been older than 3. Half the time I was in the water playing with my son I was having a great time and the other half I felt like such a helecopter mom for hovering over my son the whole time. Idk what I should do next time I mean all the moms were staring at me as I played with my son. I had a great time but I just felt weird. They had lifegaurds but I really don't trust a stranger keeping an eye on my son. Am I a helecopter mom ????? Please help.
