I am embarrassed about this problem, but I am putting it out into the universe to hold myself accountable. I struggle with micromanaging my adult offspring who goes to university. Maybe not quite as bad as it sounds. They have learning disabilities and mental illness and are going to college. I have the password to their campus account and have helped them stay organized and with assignments when they want. But they are getting older, better mental health wise, and they need to be more independent. I have been pulling away my support because I know I need to. They want me to. I know they have work due tonight, and I am holding myself back from calling them and prompting them. They know I am here if they need me. Whether they complete the work, pass or fail, it is their life, and they will be ok. They have to grow up and figure things out and choose when they want help or not. They need to fail sometimes and just work it out. I know this sounds like something that should be easy and that I can be a helicopter parent sometimes. I think the experience of starting college during COVID and the stress that caused for us didn't help. Anyway, please don't judge I'm just a mom struggling to be better. Wish me luck. I will let yall know how it goes.
