I am the mother of three little girls! This morning my oldest (whom is 6, soon to be 7) tells me that she no longer needs my help on something I was trying to help her with! I was COMPLETELY crushed! Do you experience the same thing? Does it get easier feeling REJECTION from each child? She's my first born and I never thought I would see the day that she didnt need me..or think she did anyways.

Well Now you see that your kids are learning. And it shows that youre a good mother coz thats an amazing changes on our kids they learn something from us ..The things we do everyday they are trying to adapt more. Dont think your kids aint gonna need you.. as a mother just be there for them coz they need you always with your care and teachings they are expecting you to be there for them.

oh don't worry, she will always 'need' you! there are times that my 14 year old needs me to do things for her and my 10 year old (both daughters) still need their mom (heck, there are times that i, age 46, need MY mom!) i wouldnt let it bug you too much...its just her way of trying to become a little more independant.
