That sounds so much like my mom and I!
She never really got it when I was joining groups and clubs as she was more introverted.
She was worried that I would get hurt/excluded etc. And I did sometimes. And sometimes I hurt or excluded others. But, as an introvert I loved that kind of stuff.
I think you're right though in letting her quit when she wants to!

Just remember, "I am you and you are me," but that does not mean you and M are joined at the hip, nor would you want to be. Introvert or extrovert, there is a place in this world for both.

I think this is an eternal parenting dilemma: where do I end and my child begin? where are we the same? where are we different? and how do I cope with that? ...at least, it is for me.

Keep breathing deep! :-)
