Hi @hawkfan ,
Welcome to the forums, it's really nice to have you here! Feel free to take some time to read around the different discussion boards. I also have an 11 year old, and I have to say it's a wonderful age but also really challenging at times! Do you find that you are comparing yourself to people in real life, or on social media, or both? I think a lot of us can relate to questioning what we do as parents, I certainly do at times!
I also just wanted to let you know about a free parents support service that we have in case you're interested, you can chat to qualified counsellors about any parenting issues you may be having - you can check that out here if you're interested.

It's OK to be worrying about what you do. I am the same and you are not alone. I am always afraid to do something wrong or not to do anything. Be more confident, listen to the child, look at the reaction.
Support your child and everything will be fine!

Hello! I feel you! Maybe we all are the same, we are always worrying about not doing enough. But I am not sure you have to think like this! We can't be sure that everything will go as we want it, but be kind to yourself, love your children and they will love you back! Let's chat!
It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
