Paranoid.. Over Protective

JS has gone for a leadership camp organized by the school this weekend. It’s a 3D2N camp somewhere out of town. I always encourage her to go for this kind of camp and outings as I believe it will foster her social skills as well as leadership skills. To learn how to be a team player and such. Before signing her up, I routinely asked her father’s permission (since he is the one paying). The very first question he asked was “How many girls going?”

It has been three months since JS signed up for the camp and each time we reminded the dad she will be going away for the camp, the father would ask “How many girls going?” As though I am sending off my girl to a pack of wolves.

Yesterday he whataspp me and said “My mother said want to come over to our place this weekend. But JS not around, how to tell my parents?”

I said “Tell them about what?”

He said “About JS not at home for 3D2N”

I said “Hello… I told your parents last Wednesday when I went to visit them. They knew JS is going off to camp!”

This is not the first time JS going for overnight camp and yet he is not able to get go and is being very paranoid as if he doesn’t trust my judgement. I don’t simply let her go just any camp. Only camps that I trust the organizers. And yet the daddy still can’t let go.

JS used to go for sleepover at her betsie’s houes too. But my MIL had warned us or rather ME for not letting her have anymore sleepover. Reason being that her betsie’s has a older brother who is 3 years older than them. So no more sleepover for JS unless her betsie comes over to our house.

    I think they meant good intention… I Believe you have educated JS how to protect herself from potential abuses(sexual specifically)

    All daddy would b paranoid!

    Sometimes being over worried is not a blessing at all
