Sometimes, you have to let them go. My daughter got her driver's license this summer. It has been hard enough letting her drive herself to dance classes, but at least she is the only one in the car. Today, she wanted to pick up her friend and go back-to-school shopping. I have no problem with the shopping, but the friend part worries me. I worry that she will be distracted and not pay attention. I worry she will get lost driving across town to her friend’s house. I hope I have taught her well enough that she will be okay.
