Allowing Our Kids to Grow Up

One mom who is taking the Priceless Parenting online class shared how she decided to give her kindergartner a choice. Since he started school in the fall, she always drove him to school, parked the car and then walked him to his classroom. One morning she gave him a choice asking “Would you rather have me park and walk you to your classroom or drop you off at the door and walk in by yourself?” He replied that he wanted to try walking in by himself.

Although the mom knew this was a safe situation, she still found herself worrying about the many things that could possibly go wrong before he got to his classroom. Fortunately everything went just fine and her son grew in confidence that day!
