You accuse me of sheltering my kids like it is a bad thing.
For 9 months they were part of my body. For another year+ they needed to be within arms reach for both nourishment and mobility.
They will walk out on their own into the world around the age of 18. But there is a a huge transition for them to go through between being a toddler and being an adult.
This transition is made possible through sheltering
It is a parent’s job and responsibility to help kids grow, learn about the world, and feel the pain of the world at a rate that they can handle and will benefit them. This is sheltering and I fully intend on continuing.
