I lost my son when he was just 10 years old because I gave him too much freedom. I am now very watchful of what my daughter is doing at all times. She understands why this needs to be the case, and I have told her repeatedly that I need to make sure that, as her mother, it’s my job to keep her safe. She uses her favorite chat app nightly, and I use a Snapchat Hack app to check up on her. I have not told her that I’m doing thi for the reason that I want to feel free to act if she normally does when she uses it. I’m pleased to say that she uses it in a mature fashion, and there are no problems.
When I was growing up, my parents were very overprotective. This made me rebel. It also made my brother repeal, too. I swore up and down that when I had children of my own that I would let them have more freedom. I didn’t want them to live the overprotective life me and my brother and I grew up in. So when I had children of my own, that is exactly the type of parent that I was. But I learned too late that being a good parent and not giving your children too much freedom is the better way to go. I lost my son because I thought I was doing the right thing, but it turned out the opposite was true.
I do give my daughter some room to breathe. I want her to be able to go out and socialize and learn how to be a healthy, restore teenager. I don’t want her to be socially inept, or have trouble when she tries to go find a job somewhere because she’s not good in social situations. But right now, I don’t let her run around and do whatever she wants to. This goes for her time online, too. I watch what she does on all the major social networks. I don’t want her to fall into the wrong crowd and ruin her life. I don’t want her to fall into the wrong crowd and lose her life either. She understands this and she doesn’t give me much trouble
