Last night a friend exclaimed that she’s worried about having a child in today’s world. I completely understand her fear. I share that same fear. I understand that we should not let fear control us and it’s not controlling my life. However, it’d be a lie to say I’m not fearful as a mom. I worry about so many aspects of the present and the future. There is always the unknown and then there’s balancing between being protective and yet also allowing your child to explore. I’m interested in hearing your thoughts. How do you balance fear and raising a child? When do you decide the current environment is no longer safe enough? How much of the world do you expose your child to?
Ahmeli…that the balancing act gets a little easier over the years.
