Cutting the cord

You and your mommy are very close. The two of you are like peas and carrots. You spend a lot of time together, and you're always there for each other. I could say you are best friends! And that's not something all children can say of their parents! Your mom will always back you up and support you and love you for who you are. Part of growing up, is letting go of your childhood and becoming a man. When you told me you're no longer a child, but a young man, I believed you. I can tell by the sound of your voice, the size of your feet and the way you have changed. You are such a smart boy - can I still call you a boy? - and at the same time very emotional. Your heart's in the right place, you know? You care about people and animals and that's a good virtue.

Growing up also means cutting the cord. Since you and your mom spend so much time together and the two of you rely on each other all the time, it won't be easy to let go. You want to be a young man, but at the same time, you are still a young boy who needs his mommy. No offence, but at the age of 10, by no means can you cope on your own. You like to hang out with your mom and talk to her and it's great to see the two of you enjoying each other's company. I can no longer count the numerous times tears from joy were rolling down your cheeks because you and your mommy got the giggles. There's such a bond between the two of you, that nobody will ever be able to break that by any means. It's something only you and your mom will be able to release. Maybe the two of you should try to stretch the cord a little, to see how far you can get? You will still have the opportunity to come closer again. 

Your mom is absolutely right when she occasionally lets you stay with friends or family or your daddy. It's good for you, to spend some time with other people beside your mom who you love the most. Don't worry, she'll always be there for you.. You're the most precious person in the world to her! There's absolutely nothing to worry about..
