    ... Drew, it is the privelage of ALL parents to be right all of the time when it comes to their children.

    Eventually when you have your own you get your turn to be right

    When you're older you can get your own back. Now I'm always right and she has to admit it. I was pobably right back then too, but if I argued I'd get a slap and wouldn't be allowed to watch Monkey on Friday night.

    "Oi! anyone wanna fight?"

    Your lucky to have a mum.

    I have a dad and hes always right, (even over his gas system, which would have a gas engineer in fits)

    Drew, I* could've told you that disappearing for any length of time to go and enjoy yourself would meet with a low appreciation rating - and I'm a bloke


    * along with a huuuuge percentage of the blokes on the forum

    Its what some of us grew up with (as well as 'The Water Margin' ). Far better than watching a bear walk around starkers all day and then putting on clothes to go to bed - no wonder my generation grew up confused and disenchanted

    Why's Mum objecting, Drew ?
    Are there no assurances you can give her that'd put her mind at ease ?

    It's hard though, knowing your children are doing something potentially dangerous/ accident prone/ where you don't know they're fine.
    If we want them to thrive though we have to accept that they are adults, and it's their life, not ours.

    I still panic when I know they're going climbing though, especially on ice I don't tell them that, then they'd fret about me worrying, I just ask that they phone me when they're coming home.

    Best advice ? Small steps Drew Nights out, weekends out, weeks out doing just the things that got her all bothered.

    atb,
    Mary

    As you get older, they aren't Drew.

    However my experience says don't point it out when they are wrong.

    Particularly don't prepare a presentation on the subject.






    With slides.










    and handouts











    and a carefully invited audience.










    Just don't
