I dropped my daughter at sleep-away camp last Sunday and I've barely heard from her. Her cell phone is alive and allowed at this camp, so that's not the problem. Actually, the problem is with me and my mom feelings. I'm really happy that this teen is either so preoccupied or busy that checking in with me isn't top of mind. I do get random texts, here they are:
-Mom, so far I rate this camp a 4.5 out of 10.
-I'm good mom, this camp is up to a 6.0 I just crowd surfed during the "Red" concert.
-Mom the Starbucks drinks you packed for me rock. I've met some cool new friends btw.
-Mom camp is now at a 8.5. I'm alive btw
-Mom I overslept talked all night love this camp!
-Mom, how's the cat?
Suffice to say the cat ranks high in our home, and my kid is comfortable enough to enjoy her time away without being homesick. BTW, she's at a very rockin' place called Camp Electric; I call it Toby Mac's band camp. www.CampElectric.com

She Kids Safety Tips-Reminder
Teach your children their full names, address, and home telephone number. Make sure they know your full name. Make sure your children know how to reach you at work or on your cell phone. Teach your children how and when to use 911 and make sure your children have a trusted adult to call if they're scared or have an emergency. Instruct children to keep the door locked and not to open the door to talk to anyone when they are home alone. Set rules with your children about having visitors over when you're not home and how to answer the telephone.
