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.

Not mine
My friend's Mum got Power Rangers taken off TV.

I live in New Zealand, where most people are fairly liberal (even though homosexuality only stopped being illegal in the 80s), but quite a stink was kicked up when I was a young'un and these teenagers in outlandish costumes were kicking seven shades of shit out of an endless line of poorly dressed bad guys on everyone's telly five afternoons a week. In a bitchkrieg to rival the actions of Kyle's mum in the South Park movie, Ben's mum got petitions together, gathered support, campaigned heavily to get this filth off the air and away from our children and bloody won, ending lunchtime re-enactments forever.

This all happened a long time before I met Ben but that didn't stop me giving him shit for it. He also told me once that his mum bought him and his two brothers a Ninja Turtles weapon set that consisted of the four different weapons, with each one allocated to a certain brother (Ben got the kitana) and Donatello's bo held by Mum. The tales of getting beaten with that thing for fucking around are pretty legendary.

She said it was because Power Rangers was a bad influence,
but really she was motivated by the fact that it was just really shit. Sounds like she did New Zealand a massive favour. Any chance you can get her to be outraged at Children's BBC gaywads Dick and Dom?
