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.

modern protective parenting?
my mum regularly checks my facebook page ever since she got an account.

so far she's called me up on a few pictures specifically the ones where i'm passed out in our washing basket, taken while she was on holiday.

my status comments are interesting especially if they contain bad language.
"dont be using words like that young lady you're a little girl"

i'm 19.... at this rate she'll be calling me a teenager when i'm 40.

you just need to set her up in a filter group - so she can't see certain things on your profile. Because of the job I am in I have parts of my profile - i.e photos and updates filtered from people on lists I create. Better that way!

I'm afraid it won't get any better
I'm 50 and I'm still my mother's "little girlie".

Your mistake was in letting your mother discover facebook.

and this dear reader
is why you never, NEVER add your parants or older family to facebook. Reject them and accept the consequence.

I found a great solution
Set up another facebook account with a random pseudonym and do the search-and-add thing for them. Maybe even add a few messages. Sign up for loads of club updates etc so you've got a quickly updating wall.

They'll just figure you don't chat much.
