You don't let go. He is your son, and will always be, but you do let them grow up. That is the hard part. You never stop loving them, or caring for them. My kids are still young, but they will always be my babies.

From the minute you give birth your relationship changes with your child. I have two adult sons which I am very close to and a little girl.My eldest son moved out at 19 to attend university and it was really hard at first. He has just finished his second year and is enjoying life, but I am still the first person he rings in a crisis.

You have to support your son and tell him how proud you are and let him fly. He is a man now and he needs to experience things for himself. It does not mean he loves you any less in fact we need our parents more as adults as we do as a child. My son appreciates me more not living at home and the time he does get home which is about twice a year for a week we spend a lot of time laughing and catching up. He is my best friend as well as my son. You will find the same I am sure. Be proud you did a good job mum.

In answer to your question, you never stop worrying about them, and you never stop being a mum!
