As a parent of a SENIOR, I am trying to have Noah do more for himself. It is hard for me to watch him stress over minor situations and not help him find a solution. I am the Italian-Jew mom who hovers and helps no matter if he wants it or not.
He is almost 18! So, I am trying to step back and wait for him to ask for help. This transition for both of us is not easy. I know he will benefit in the long run.
