This is a question Helicopter Parents

Back when young ScaryDuck worked in the Dole office rather than simply queuing in it, he had to deal with a claimant brought in by his mum. She did all the talking. He was 40 years old.

Have you had to deal with over-protective parents? Get your Dad to tell us all about it.

« Go Back

Get your priorities right...
Walking down the street one day, on a main road in a quiet little town, a toddler toddles by out of the lane in front of me going at an impressive lick for such a young lad... straight out onto the main road.

So I skip out and take him by the hand.

'Hello Mate! Where did you come from, eh?'

I lead him back up the road he came from, and spot a house with a slide and toys in the front garden, with the gate wide open. So we toddle up to the door and I give a knock.

Some foul harridan in a tracksuit opens the door and looks quizzically at us for a second.

'He'd got out of the garden and was on the main road - so I've brought him back. It looks like he managed to open the gate, clever lad.'
'OK, I'm going - but you want to get that gate sorted out.'

I was fairly calm though the whole thing, because I just thought - people are protective about their kids, you know? Of course they get a bit emotional...

And then I thought about it as I wandered into town - hang on a minute... you leave your kid in the front garden, you don't care that he goes walkabout on the main road... and you're scared of the Paedos? Get your priorities right - he's in much more danger from having a shit mum like you who's going to leave him to his own devices on the street than he is from the scary paedos... daft bint.

Happens to me a fair bit too, that does.
Being a liberal-minded individual with a love and respect for peace and love and all that bollocks, I feel that giving the parents a good swift kicking would sort the problem out pretty damn quickly.

Some people don't deserve kids ...
As the parent of a toddler, I'd be damn glad if someone brought him back if he escaped ... good on you!

It really
enforces the argument for breeding licenses.
Good on you though for looking out for the little one.

Oh man
don't get me started on breeding licences

if I was in charge they'd cost £10,000 for a start

You just know......

because making people pay all that money will really help the child. It's not like kids need clothes and food and things like that.

What you do is...
The license costs wedges of cash, but in return you get your kiddy license ration book that allows you to wander in to mothercare, sainsbury's etc and pick up kiddy things at a vast discount.

Thus ensuring that you can't just spend the money on fags.

Poor kid. ):
(Not because you found him - that was a very good thing!)

This is crazy
It's this kind of ridiculous response from a shitty parent that is more likely to lead to kids getting abducted or run over. Her attitude is what leads to people to not doing anything when they really should take action.

Good on you mate, you did the right thing. Don't feel bad just because she is a shit parent.

Jesus christ
I don't care how over emotional and protective she thinks she was being, I would have shouted her down til she realised her son could have been run over. That's just fucking stupid - and if you were a paedo why would you have brought him HOME?!?

Two thoughts...
"If I hadn't caught your son, he would now be dead, so less of the shouting at me perhaps."

And then off to find a phone to call child protection...

I was thinking the exact same thing after reading the original post. Some people should be sterilised or, better yet, castrated. What scares me is that there's nothing stopping this woman from having more sprogs...*shudders*

It's worth remembering that

We know she can.
But I bet she never has, nor will.
