It's True: I'm a Hover Mom

[Editor's Note: I could have written this post by Miranda at Not Super, Just Mom -- a few years ago. As you might have gleaned from my post this morning, I've had a tendency to hover over the years. It's been a real fight for me to sit down and let the boys be at times. I'm getting there, and all I can tell Miranda is that she will to -- when it's right for her and her kiddo. Do you have any hovering -- or not -- advice? -Jenna]
I’m afraid that he’ll get hurt and need me. But what I’m probably more afraid of is that he won’t need me at all.
I realize that I was nearly twice Joshua’s current age when I was spending so much of my time outside and unsupervised, but I worry that if I don’t let him start to explore the world on his own a little bit, he’ll never explore it at all.
