I drive my 10 year old child to school each day. However, lately he has been complaining about my dropping him off at school. He says it is embarrassing to be seen being dropped off by his father, and wants me to drop him off 2 blocks away.
I'm concerned about his safety, and don't feel comfortable dropping him off out of site of the school entrance. My feelings are also hurt by these comments. Is it normal for a child to be embarrassed by being seen with their parent? Is there any way I can help make him less embarrassed?
