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.

Fottball parents
Sent my kid down to the under 5's Fottball training at the local club, really well run good coaches lots of kids.
At one stage I counted more parents than kids on the pitch coaxing their children to kick the ball, or felt thay had the need to stay in the middle of the small 5-aside pitch and talk to the other dippy parents sipping their over prised Latte. My son and severeal more like him whos dads realised that the coach should be allowed to do just that had already sat down away from the pitch to watch. The coach had to tell them to get off the pitch.

My son loved it, however the other kids who ran to daddy every two mins didn't. I am sure if they were not so close the kid would have joined in.

By all means get involved, just offer to help not to just pressume they need your help and make it harder for everyone else.
Oh and if you as a dad prefer Rugby even though you are too weak to play the sport, dont cheer when your son picks the ball up and runs with it. As thats hand ball and not allowed you tit.

Is there any chance B3ta can get a spellchecker and/or a punctuation checker?
FOOTBALL, not, as you put (twice) fottball.
PRICED, not prised.
SEVERAL, not severeal.
PRESUME, not pressume.
Also, I'd be here all day pinting out the bad punctuation, lack of punctuation.
How can you expect the children to grow up well when the parents can't even spell?

Pints of punctuation?
I like the rhyme at the end, though.
