As a parent, you never stop worrying about your children. They could be at school, at a party, at the doctor's office, across the world, even chilling upstairs in their bedroom, and there will always be a little part of you that wants to make sure that they're okay. Parents are meant to protect their children after all. But at some point, you need to loosen your grip a little bit. You don't have to throw them out the window like a little bird you nursed to health, but you do have to grant them partial freedom at some point to grow on their own.
