But you can gradually cut back on the more hands-on"care" - no difference whether you are in Singapore or elsewhere! At least for short periods of time. I am in the same stage of life as you, and I'm telling myself that too! We are going on a 10-day vacation in May next year without the kids, which will be the first time we are leaving them alone at home for more than 1 night. I'm slightly nervous for my older girl; the younger one will be fine, and will probably have to be the one "in charge".

I have done that when kids were 10 and 12. Not intentionally though. I arranged for my mum to stay with kids and sleepover while I travelled with dh.

But kids sent my mum home. They insisted they would be fine on their own at home since they would only be in their room studying so it made no difference whether my mum went home or stayed there (and be bored). So my mum really went home! She would deliver meals to them thrice a day and stay abit to chit chat and then she would bring her tingkat home. My mum lives 2 block away.

Kids informed me of their revised babysitting arrangement when I was already overseas and assured me they would be fine because they already tried it out for a day or 2, they decided they didn't want grandma babysitting them 24x7 and grandma could sleep better in her own bed.

I know they are independent all along but didn't expect them to be so independent. They said those were their best 8 days, although dd2 was stuck at home preparing for her p4 SA2 but both of them ultra happy. Must be that feeling of empowerment

My parents went away for 6 mths when I was 17 and my brother 15. Grandma delivered meals and stayed over at night (she only lived 2 doors away), we had a PT cleaner who also ironed. I really wonder how they could do that, but we we fine (my brother took several years off my life, but that's another story). My kids have refused to have grandma over as they don't want to look after her! The normal stuff will be fine; it's always the unexpected that can be a worry, especially for my older girl.
