Do any other mums find it hard when your kids grow up? I’m really struggling listening to my daughter talk about her new boyfriend. I’m worried he’s not enough for her, he doesn’t seem prepared to give as much to the relationship as my daughter is. But she says he makes her happy. Am I over reacting? I’ll be keeping a close eye as always anyway

  • This transition can be such a difficult one. All mums can do is be there to listen and to advise when they ask for it and of course do be mum and if you see something that is inappropriate then discuss it in a sensitive and respectful way. We have the experience and they are learning – they will come to us for advise. Always keep those lines of communication open. We always want the very best for our children – so completely understand. Good Luck.


  • I think it’s all part of being a mum. We just want the best for our kids and for them to always be happy
