I was probably what would be described as a “Helicopter Parent” to my three children. It left me exhausted many days.
I think, no matter what I did when they were young, they were determined to find their own ways.
That’s what has happened now.
They’ve scattered and I seldom get asked for help or advice.
The helicopter engine has been turned off.
I’m resting and accepting what is and what will be, without flying over it.
