My wife had a chance as a child to go to Japan on a school trip, and her mother did not allow such, in fear something bad would happen to her. I've
heard this story of regret atleast a thousand times.
Being a parent, it is natural for us to worry about the well being of our children, especially when they are so far out of reach.
Still, to deny your child this experince will leave a rift. So, I humbly suggest you have faith and allow your child to fly.
Nothing bad will happen. I know it's scary to let the baby bird fly from the nest, but this is the nature of the existance. You've done your job,
taught right from wrong, and now it's time to let your kid show you that they took to heart these lessons.
Wanting to protect your child is noble, just don't let your concern deny them an experince of a lifetime.
