Parents. We're always worrying about our kids... and now, a study finds that parents of kids under the age of 10 have at least SIX of what I'm calling "Worry Thoughts" about the kids every day. Now, that may be a lower number to some, but I think it's maybe right on the money... at least, based on what I remember from Kyla being that young. I was no helicopter parent, however... I believe in a more liberal approach... let 'em make mistakes, let 'em experience the results of their choices and see how it all works out... Not saying I threw caution to the wind, but, I did let my kiddo do some things so she'd have to evolve out of a "safety bubble..."
Anyway, here are some things, according to the study, parents are worrying about when it comes to these kids... . see how you feel about this.
That they aren’t spending enough time with them.
They aren’t eating a healthy diet.
They don’t ‘fit in’ with other kids at nursery / pre-school / school
They aren’t sleeping enough
That they can’t help them with their problems in general
They aren’t doing well in nursery / pre-school / school
They aren’t achieving as much as other children their age
They aren’t making enough friends
Other children might bully them because of how they look
They aren’t behaving themselves in class
