Re: Letting go ... DS & me

I don't see DS much at this time, as he works & has night classes.

We're making a few plans to do things next school year, if he doesn't have other obligations (Cirque du Solie, an air show).

I'm ready for him to go away to college.

That's a big step! What made you realize you were ready?

Re: Letting go ... DS & me

If I've done my job as a parent, DS should be able to move on to the next stage of his life.

Re: Letting go ... DS & me

I've told DS that any plans he makes for holidays are his plans, I've encouraged him to spend time with both my family and his dad's family.

Turns out, that according to him, his dad wants him to spend every holiday at his place (and has tried to talk DS into it)

This is the right thing to do. If his dad gets too pushy in his greed, he'll push his son away. Be positive and enjoy the time with DS, and he'll be happy to see you.
