When are we ever ready to let go?

When are we ever ready to let go?

As my eldest boy will be encroaching into teenage territory soon, this question keeps popping up.

The kids are growing up to be more independent and confident, but it also means they will soon have their own social circle. They might not join us in all our family outings, sometimes, they find venues (and events) childish too.

Boon Kang (No2) is P3, and he suddenly requests to cycle to school today.
Alarm rings off. Is he ready?

Actually, are we Parents ready?

Parents always give kids less credit than they deserve.
Will he know how to cross the road safely?
Will he pay attention even when Green light in his favour?
Can we trust his judgement?

Look Right Look Left, No car, Go.
Daddy always nag before we cross the road.

They will soon outgrow their kiddie bikes, and carefree childhood behind.

Dilemma of parenting, we want them to grow up safely and mature, yet we miss their cute growing-up faces and actions.
