My daughter has just started going to playgroup. I stay there with her but she tends to take off to play with the other kids without telling me or even letting me know she is going off to play. I love her dearly & it sort of makes me feel like she doesn’t need me that much anymore. I’m finding it hard to take that she is growing up & next year she’ll be at kindy without me at all.

  • This is great sign.. It means she still needs you but she also is confident to experience new things.. This means you are doing a brilliant job. She will always need you even when she’s older, just in different ways.. I still need my mum :)

  • I know exactly how you feel. I can’t help by cry a little when my little one runs off to play without needing me around. Just don’t want her to grow too fast

  • no body tells you the hardest part of being a parent is when your little ones grow and get to the stage that they don’t need to be beside Mum all the time and start to find their independence and this is hard for any Mum but just know this they will always need their Mum at time and it never matters how old they are. My daughter was vomiting badly Saturday night and she kept calling out for me not her hubby and when it went on for to long and the Ambo’s were called it was me her Mum she wanted to go with her and not her hubby and she is almost 30 and secretly those time always makes you feel good inside that they still need their mum.

  • Well done to you and your little girl! Of course she still needs you, but in this area of her life she is adventurous enough and confident enough to be independent. Remember she still needs your guiding hand and support in continuing to develop her social skills and cope with disappointments and unexpected twists and turns in life.

  • Many Mums would be happy that their child just “takes off & play” instead of prying them loose from their body full of tears. Shed a tear & be proud that you have raised a well, socially adjusted girl. Now its time for you to have some well earned “Me” time
