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 sister is going to be one of those
My sister is more than a little bit of an uptight control freak. Think Monica from Friends with a nice personality. She does get rather stressed when things don;t go to plan. Luckily her husband is the opposite. Unorganised but very relaxed. They compliment each other perfectly. She helps him keep everything in control and he helps her relax and stop stressing over every little thing that goes wrong. A perfect match.

But now they have a kid. Harry. an 11 month old little wonder. My sister has him under her complete control.

She has a daily rota which she stick to with military precision. (she had a go at my mum for letting him over sleep by 5 minutes)

She weened him off his dummy before he was 5 months old.

I dread to think what it will be like for him as he gets older. I can envision a life where he has to supply her with an itinerary of all his plans for every time he wants to go out. How long on each playground swing/slide/climbing frame he is going to spend. Where he;s going with his friends and when he will go somewhere else etc.

I wouldn't be surprised if she has him using a diary as soon as he can read and write.

I'm going to be like this
I just know it. I need to find a woman who can either stop me doing this or is just as bad

The mum doesn't happen to be called Susan, does she?
Long shot, but this story fits very well with some relatives of mine who have recently had a baby called Harry.
