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.

Finacial Limitations?
Bah. I've had a job since 11 (paperround) and had to pay for all my own excursions/outings since then. I do believe I had to pay 'resource fee' ($180 to school for loaning of textbooks) from year 9 onwards.

It was never a issue of finance. It was an issue of DENIED.*

* Should read permission. Looking back now I wondered if she had a DENIED stamp that she used on permission slips. Seriously.

In that case, I don't really know what to say.

All I can think of is to resort to my fallback chirpy optimism: At least now you're older, hopefully you have the money to do the really fun stuff. That tankballing sounds like fun...
