I have a question..My 11 yr old boy brought me sign up papers for 6th grade camp but was upset because he was not sure if he wanted to go. His sister went last year and had a blast but the problem is they get no communication from there parents except for an email in the middle of their week there and that does not make him comfortable. He has always been very close to me and he struggled with tears in his eyes when he finally made his decision to not go. I told him ok but I'm not sure if that was the right thing to do. Should I of encouraged him and told him he would be fine? or did I make the right choice in letting him make his own decision? I don't want him to miss this opportunity and he already gets alot of slack for being the "Mama's boy" but I don't want him uncomfortable and sad while he is there...what do you think??
