My son starts high school real soon. This brings about a whole new experience for my son. And honestly for me. On one hand I'm excited for him. It's going to be great. On the other hand it's a huge change. There will be a new group of kids and young adults. I'm nervous. This will be the first year he takes the public bus home. One of the kids he goes home with bullied him. I know it's time for me to let go a bit. But I also want to be open to talk to him about what I consider dangerous or just plain wrong. Like drugs or unprotected sex or riding in cars. I could go on and on and on even more. I'm speaking about here because I don't want him to pick up what I'm feeling. He's my last child at home. I have two other sons and a daughter. One of my other boys is leaving for Africa in October. I have bipolar and high anxiety. So it just sits in my mind and festers. Not to mention his good friend. I'd have to make a whole new post just to explain that! My son will also be interacting with the older kids due to some of his classes. I'm just feeling a little out of control. Sorry it's all over the place. I hope you could keep up!
