I protected my children as they got older I would give tell them these are the rules now that you are this age and just did this until they were 18 by that time they didn't need to have any new rules.

I know he needs to grow up and I keep telling myself that but I still can't help feeling like this. I know I can't do anything to help, but I keep asking myself what I did to screw him up.
I also know it's not my fault, but again it runs through my mind! aaarrrggghhhh!
Then again, maybe I protected him too much to begin with!?

Oh my!
Definitely not a child any more.

Sorry, but I think at age 29 they need to be responsible for their own actions.
That's too old for you to be 'protecting'....

(BTW - mine are 24 and almost 27)

this one is 29 and has gotten himself into trouble with the law. I thought I raised them better than that. Especially since my mom's side are police officers. It's just like they don't think.

And what do you think they need protected from?

Why doesn't it get easier! This stress is keeping my scale up! I even do good eating and exercising on most days, but the scale doesn't reflect that!! emoticon
