One note. Would you want them to feel bad for growing up? Then find a way to cope, or at some point they might leave for good. How do I know this ? I married a person that could not stand the expectations of parents and the need they had to be involved in every aspect of his life. Being a parent is letting go a little bit at a time until they are ready to fly solo. It is hard being a parent in the end it should be about you and the father and the child free to be whatever they wish once they are legal adults. A Mother Understanding what it Takes, and not Perfect.
