Bubble Parents – You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet

Bubble Parents – You Ain’t Seen Nothing YetI read a post today called “Bubble Parents”, great post! She put her daughter in a bubble and now can’t get her out. Have a wee read.

Having kids is frightening, even scarier is giving them the independence they need to be functioning adults.

You think giving birth is scary? Try watching your grandchild be born.

You think letting them go to the park is scary? Try letting them go to England.

You think the first day of school is scary? Try the first day of college.

You think teaching them to ride a bike is scary? Get in the passenger seat while they learn to drive.

You think letting them walk to school is scary? Hand over some car keys.

You think letting them play outside is scary? Try letting them go to Vegas.

You think letting them use the stove is scary? It is, I have nothing on this one.

You think their first job is scary? My kid used to use a saw to cut liver.

You think kids are scary? No, adults, adults are scary!!!!

  1. It really is scary being a parent but it makes me so proud to see how they’ve turned out. And it’s still scary, I don’t think that ever goes away. I know my own parents still worry about me and my sisters. It’s all part of loving someone I suppose.

  2. Damn…and here was I thinking the old story of “small people, small problems…big people, big problems” was just a lie to make me feel better as a new parent. Guess I’m not giving up drinking any time soon.

  3. Never understood that kind of parent. The best part of being a parent is watching your kids fly. They are intrepid and determined, curious and brave. Why kill that? I only wish we could keep that spirit as adults 🙂

  4. There, but . for the grace of God, I go. What do I need to have two boys-into-men? It was always scary, with illnesses, school, careers, and jobs. But we (wife and I) attribute it to “There are no accidents” and LUCK. And that’s all I can say about that.

  5. Yes! I’ve met these parents and they are always interesting to me. I have a 7, 9, and 11 year old. I protect them as a mother should, but they don’t live in a bubble. Most of my friends have older children and I love that cause I see what to expect and they keep me from putting mine in that bubble.
