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.

why me?
i have an older brother, an older sister and a younger sister. i'm by no means a child(i'm 34), yet my mother refuses to believe this. she phones me(not the others, just me) every day, just to see if i'm alright. if i don't answer the phone, she panicks and calls my mobile, demanding to know where i am and if i'm safe. if i go to her house, even in the daytime, she insists on giving me bus fare as she doesn't like me walking the 3/4 of a mile home alone. i'm the only one of the four of us that isn't in debt, yet she still tries to give me money and food. i haven't lived with my parents for 10 years, but that doesn't stop her from trying to get me to move back in with them. she often phones my friends to see if i've discussed with them any problems i might have that have been kept from her. my aunt lives roughly 1 minutes' walk from me, so mum will phone her at least twice a week to come round and check up on me. she will often phone me before she goes to bed, just to say goodnight.
still, it's not all bad. i went to asda with her before and she bought me 2 new pairs of pants and a t-shirt!

mum is like that too, it seems like she couldn't give a toss about the others as long as she's annoying me
