I feel like I'm not a good mother. I trust my daughter very much. I allowed her to get a belly button ring at almost 15 and my sister in law said I allowed it too soon and was wrong. I feel like there are things I feel like it's o.k but maybe I should be saying no. I trust her but why do I feel like I'm not doing a good thing to allow her to do certain things. I feel like as a parent there are some that probably look at me as a bad parent maybe for the things I allow her to do. Am I the only one that feels like this?

Fiona I feel that when I was young either I was allowed or not I still did what I wanted. Now that I'm a parent I want to keep an open relationship and not a sneaky one, but I sometimes feel like other mothers look down on me as tho I'm not doing good for my child. I wonder if it's my insecurities that causes me to think this wAy or they actually are?! So confused honestly,, I'm caught between what others will think and what I think is ok!!

Its okay. I feel the same way as you. I let my 14 year old get her nipples pierced. I don't like to be over protective. I like letting my kids do what they feel is right. This is how they learn responsibility.
