8 year old - how much freedom? Help please!!!
Hi - I've only just become a member but I hope someone can help me because this is causing an arguement between my husband and me! My daughter is 8 years old and attends a gym class at 6 pm - when I take her I go with her into the gym and make sure that she is safely in the class - you can't stay and watch so I go and get a coffee or take my son to the play area on the same site. I have just found out that when my husband takes her to gym he lets her go in on her own - he watches her from the front entrance but she then pays for herself and makes her way into the building and the gym on her own - once she has gone past the pay till you - she is no longer in sight - I feel that this is too much but now that he as started it, I am afraid it will dent her confidence to stop it but I am not happy to let it continue either - can anyone give me their opinion please, my husband says I am being too protective? Am I? Thank you in advance.
