Yesterday one of my relatives told me that I'm a little too much involved in my son. Whole day I'm running after him. I should fetch some time for myself as well as others. I was stunned to gear this.. Since 4 years my son has become my priority. I spend my whole day after him. I love to cater yo his needs. From food , studies to extracurricular activities I like to take care of everything by myself. Am I doing anything wrong in this?

I don't have children, but seeing my sister (older / my role model) she tries to spend as much time as she can with her children especially since she works full time. On weekends, it's all about the kids and spending time with them, learning, going out as a family, etc. As long as you're not babying your child like carrying him every second, babying him every step of the way then I don't see anything wrong with being with him the entire time.

@amitkokiladitya But at the same time, I think your relatives want to make sure you are having enough time for yourself. Like, relaxing and not to over stress too. Maybe when your child goes down for bed - you can get some "me time". :) Maybe a face mask and relax in the tub for a little or do something nice for you.

He also needs to learn to take care of himself as he grows. They might think you are doing too much of what he can do for himself. And yes you need to take care of you to be able to take care of him. Some me time is always good for the emotions and the body.
there is nothing wrong in it because a mother who only understands children than any others, in this age need to take care of a child and it's a good thing nothing wrong in it. you are not involved too much but you have care for him therefor you are behind him that nothing wrong will happen or he has not to face any problem therefor you are behind him and there is nothing wrong in it as my opinion.
