I’m a mom with a 19-year-old and a 15-year-old. I can tell you it’s really hard to stop parenting intently when you’ve been doing it so long. 😉

She probably doesn’t think you’re going to mess up. She’s probably just thinking about safety and being a mom. I would guess it comes from a place of love and caring.

Maybe have a chat with her about how it makes you feel so she can be more aware of it.
