Time really flies and with busy daily schedule suddenly I just realised my childrens had grows and its time for them to start their early journey of furthering theirs studies. Yesterday, my 12 years old daughter just being offered to further her studies and will be staying in hostel. Suddenly, my gut feelings told me not to let her go at this early age... maybe the thought of she would no longer be around in the house. Am I being selfish?

Well taht depends I have studied in ahostel throughout andin no way I would say that life is hard.Infact,I think it is good as I was more independent more matured than my fellow cousins.Not i am saying that staying athome with aprents is bad but I think kids learn a lot in the outside enviorment I dont think that you are selfish but I think you are quite caring.

Yeah, I do care about her but at the same time i also want her to be independent. So the best is to have some confidence in her to be just that... independent.
