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.

I wish...
my parents were helicopter parents. When I started to learn how to walk my dad suggested putting up stair gates. My mum's reply was "Oh no! Let her fall down once and she'll never do it again".

I had a gate
outside my bedroom, I soon learnt how to get around it and then had loads of fun continuously falling down the stairs! 'cos I've done it loads of times! In fact I think it's had a lasting effect.

i did the same with my daughter

Oddly enough she only fell once (and didn't hurt herself)

we didn't get them
in my house - until my mum fell down the stairs.

Neither me nor my brother or sister fell down the stairs (as babies anyway)
