Hi iamdawn,

I really don't think your fears seem abnormal to me, I think the same things and my kids are 11 and 12. And this world IS a scary place and you do have to be careful. But you did a good thing about teaching them what to do if something is wrong. But we will still worry I think.

I have just recently let my kids be in another part of store than me, but only if they are together. Sometimes I let them alone, but rarely and for only short periods of times in public, but I still worry.
My daughter walks the dog and I worry about her too and she is just going around the block and she is 12. lol This is just a different world than years ago. I understand your fears, in fact I think a lot of parents do feel them too, at least the ones who are careful. There is a line though, but you are allowing them to do things alone, but you will still worry. Parenting is like a big worryfest I think, and it NEVER ends now matter how old they get. lol
