Thank you Moms so much. I don't mean to be that person seeking encouragement but sometimes you need it. one of my bestfriends is around quite a bit and she's one of those mom mom anytime the kids have a complaint they go to her because she cuddles them I've always encouraged kids to work it out if they're fighting work it out if they're playing with the toys not involve me in its not that I don't want to help them but I also don't want to get in the middle. I have two kids she has one she's trying to teach your son have to share and now she's picked up on not letting them come over in tattle to her which is good but in the meantime I feel like I've lost the respect from my kids because they don't come to me to tattlt but they do come to me if they have a boo boo if they need any advice, just want to cuddle but whenever it is simple emergency they go to her but to me the simple emergencies are not anything to tattle about it something that they need to deal with because it's part of growing up. Am i wrong because I'm not holding her hand all the way? I feel that I'm right chill but I also don't want my kids to grow up thinking that mommy doesn't care, whenever I do I just wanted to stand on their own two feet and start to figure things out of the young age cause I'm not going to be there forever

No different to what I do. Kids will have accidents and get hurt. Don't feel bad about it. We can't wrap our kids in cotton wool, and if we try, we are only creating problems for them. You do what makes you comfortable and what you believe is best for your kids and don't feel you need to compare yourself to others. You're doing fine.

I don't worry about our kids, not so far at least. I don't think you need to worry to be a good mom.
We don't have a car and are limited in what we can take places. I'm not the parent with a change of clothes and fancy snacks and first aid kit either! Our kids have what they need though.
The thing is, you can't look at other parents to judge your parenting. You have to look to your kids. If you feel like your kids have what they need... the right balance of comfort and challenge, it's all good.

I let them play but I am not behind them with a pillow. I am simple when it comes to snacks out and about. I don't have bandaid in my purse or a first aid kit strapped to my hip....(that will be changing because we will be away from home alot for sports) I pick my battles but they seem different than a mom's mom's do.

What do you mean by "don't worry"? As parents we all worry about different things at different stages of our child's lives. And we all worry about different things for our children. I'm not quite sure what you mean by "worry". Do you mean worry about them on the playground or climbing trees, etc? Or worry about their school and education?
