I sometimes feel I'm restraining force on my daughter, if I didn't make her slow down, sleep, and take care of her health, she'd work herself into the ground. Is this standard? Most parents I know have to be pushing, I seem to have to be blocking. This is her senior year, she only needed 3 classes, she overloaded herself with 6 (3 AP, an independent study in Spanish, physics, trig). Plus her job, plus piano, plus rainbow.
