When do you let go and let your baby grow up and do things for herself? I have a 10 almost 11 yr old I'm trying to let go of and let her grow on her own but I find myself still babying her. We don't live far from her school but it still freaks me out to let her walk home not so alone but with other girls walking the same way she wants to walk home but my heart freaks out when she does I wait and try to be patient knowing what time she should be home we talk about it. She has an oppertunity to go to a camp with her school for four days but the mear mention of it she starts to cry and tell me she would miss me to much and the kitty's and the computer I try to reasure her and tell her she will be having so much fun she won't miss us that much. I won't be doing nothing but sitting around here and cleaning and not doing much but sleeping in and posibly eatting microwave meals every night just being boring or make it sound as boring as possible. She is really attached to me still at almost 11 so much that I call her a cling on. I need motherly help and advise here.
