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.

My dad was the dictionary definition of 'Helicopter Parent'...
When I was sixteen or so he still treated me like I was a little kid that needed to be protected. I guess being his youngest daughter brought out his paternal insticnts, but it got annoying fast.

I put up with it most of the time, but enough was enough when he totally rejected the guy I'd fallen for. You see, I had my first crush when I was in my mid teens. I think it might have been because I was so overprotected. I don't know. But anyway, Dad flipped and forbade me from seeing him because he was of the 'wrong sort'. He wanted me to end up with one of the local boys, who were perfectly nice but a little fishy, to be honest.

We fought constantly. My sisters were no help, they just sided with Dad. Finally I had it. I ran away. Looking back, it was stupid and immature, but at that time I was a hormone crazed kid. I found myself at the house of a local woman who apparently had pulled some shit previously and now the entire community had outcasted her. I knew of her, we'd talked before, and I knew she wouldn't tell Dad where I was.

I was shocked when she told me she could help me attract my crush. I was totally in! Turns out she was just a backstabbing bitch, but hey, I got my man in the end, and now I'm a princess with loads of shitty overpriced merchandise of me!

Yours truly,
Ariel



...I'm so, so sorry.
