Your title implies that you can veto your daughters’ choice of occupation.

It’s not protectionism. It’s more about counsel. See my comment above. If you met my kids, you’d know that they aren’t weak/delicate. You are correct, parenting is hard. One of the hardest things is to let go. But, we tried to do that early in life. I don’t think it’s a sign of weakness when your kids come to talk to you about stuff.
