Wife no longer dives (ear issues) but loved it when she did, good competent buddy. Both boys are not certified so new buddies. They are still new and only 13/16 and I love diving with them - and they are competent and aware. But it still freaks me out if I lose visibility of them as the uber responsible dad thing takes over. So the dives still have a bit higher stress level and not as much enjoyment because I still feel I have to watch them closer. So far, they both have almost 50 dives each and I have only complained to the youngest ONCE for doing too much up/down in a Caribbean dive. So the worry stuff is a parent thing only. I expect it to go down as they approach 18 but then again at 18 the stress may go way up. Hoping they don't grow into thinking they are invincible.
