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.

Indian parenting rocks.
T'other half and a mate of his were driving along one day, and heard a *thud*

They're shitting themselves: they'd hit a little boy! Got out, somehow the kid was unharmed but with a few grazes, and was about to skip off. So they decided to step over and take the boy to his parents just to make sure everything was ok.

So they arrived on the doorstep of his house, to be greeted with his mother. Fearing the wrath of this not small and meek looking Indian lady, they start to describe what happened apologise a lot, offer to take the kid to hospital. The mother grabs the kid and slaps him:

"You STUPID STUPID boy! What have I told you about running out in front of traffic! You've already broken your arm, are you trying to shock your mother into an early grave? Is that it?"

The lady then thanked them for bringing her son back home, and apologised for the trouble he'd caused.

Turns out it was the 5th time he'd done it that week.

I wish I had parents like that
Then again, I like having feelings in my upper body too.

Yes, this style of parenting clearly works
seeing as he only got run over five times in one week.
