My daughter, all without my help or knowledge, applied for her first job, set up the interview and got hired. I am both excited and terrified.
I am excited because if she can overcome her fears enough to do this job, it will show so much progress in her ability to handle the world around her. It will help her to have the confidence to take even bigger steps into the “normal” world.
I am fearful because – what if she can’t do it? What additional damage will this do to her already fragile emotions?
