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.

After reading through a lot of posts so far
it has made me realise how completely opposite my parents are. From a young age, I have been treated as quite independent. As I never really did anything wrong, I never got any grief. I always said where I was going when I went out and came in at a reasonable time. There were never any formal rules and so I never felt the need to rebel or push any boundaries. I never took advantage of their liberal attitudes but they were always there when I needed them and left me alone when I didn't.

Consequently they were more like great friends rather than parents and I was the envy of my friends who got plenty of grief off their parents. It's a method I've employed with my kids. I don't set strict ground rules and they don't take the piss.

bloody liar

I call shenanegins ! I'd say you were beaten and molested daily and have just blanked it all out..... just as you are currently blanking out the brutality you afflict on your own kids...

I'd say they shit themselves when they hear the stairs creaking late at night...
