In reply to Daisy and others w/college-aged kids, posted by antigua on October 24, 2005, at 8:17:20

My oldest graduated from college last year, my youngest is a senior in high school, and one in the middle.

I am so proud of them. Of course I miss them, but they IM/call me and I IM/call them. This is what I worked so hard as a parent for - competent independent children (who call to ask me how to hardboil an egg).

I guess they stopped letting me hover and control their lives (who, me? Controlling?) before they actually left home. So, even with my youngest, I'm OK with her making her own decisions. I try to point things out to her now and then, and sometimes she asks for advice. But, she really is quite independent.

Some people are devistated when their kids leave for college. But not everyone.
