Concern with friends


I’m new to Scholars this month and find myself always so concerned if my kids don’t have plans with friends.

Why is it that when I grew up I had one best friend and was happy but yet with my kids (ages 12, 13, 17) the minute they don’t have plans or don’t have several friends to choose from I get worried they are lonely? Then I ask them questions like why don’t you make plans and have a friend over during the week and they get annoyed at me.

But yet I keep focusing on them and not me. How do I stop this?
