Re: Am I overprotective?
I don't think your overprotective, just naturally protective. I can't be away from my 21 month old for more than a few hours, and am very picky about what kind of energetics surround him. I only let someone I trust watch him for a short period of time. I'm sure he would freak out if he had to spend the night without mama and papa. I do know some parents who left their 8 month old for a month while they left the state, so for some it's no big deal.
