My daughter is officially out on her own now. It's difficult not knowing what she's doing. I don't want to call her all the time; I want her to feel like she's independent. But, what I want to do is know how she likes college, if she's getting along with her roommates, what she's eating for dinner (if she's eating!), and if she's getting enough sleep. I don't want to bother her, though.
I'm trying not to be a helicopter parent. I just hope she wants me to know things and that she tells me at her own pace. I guess even when you're kids grow up, you never feel like they're really adults. They'll always be children.
