I have been feeling really guilty lately, my daughter just turned 2, and I am feeling bad cause I haven't taken her anywhere. I have kind of a fear of germs, I was home with her for the 1st year, but she has been in daycare for about a year now, so I thought that would help me get over her being at places that kids who are sick may have touched and stuff. But as I am thinking, it hasn't. She is 2 and has never really been anywhere but to family and friends houses, and out to the store and mall. She has never been to the beach, boardwalk, fair, public parks, amusment parks, the zoo or anything. Just typing this is making me awful, I am also afraid that she is going to be scared of things if Ikeep her so sheltered. How do you let go of the germs aspect and allow your children to live life....Am I a bad Mom???
