My eldest... a very bright yound lady is a freshaman majoring in MathED. She has 17 credits this semester (her 1st semester) and adjusting well to living away from home. Her courses include; Calculus, Logistics and Discrete Math (whatever that is:) She's two hours away from us and she was stressing over how much work she has to do. I never really believed in being the Cool Mom while she was growing up. But most of her friends look excited when they see me, probably b/c I always ask "How are they doing", "What's new" , etc. Okay here's thw question... I have been encouraging my daughter to relax , take sometime out for herself, go to the gym, join a Intramural soccer team, go to a party But always allow time for yourself. She does go to the gym, she didn't join the Intramural soocer teamand she won't go to any parties b/c she afraid of getting a underage drinking and would have to change IF CAught. I know that I/we must have done somthing right along the way with her and hope can continue it with the other two. She went to a party this weekend at another school and know I just keep thinking "Am I doing the right thing by encouraging her to Have Fun?!! PS She ahs been a child who is harder on herself then I have ever been?
