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.

Where to start...
My son used to go to an expensive private prep school (the reasons for which are long and dull). T'was the place one might see an abundance of yummy mummy, chelsea tractor driving, gold digging divorce harpies loitering around the gates comparing their Laboutin shoes and hispanic gardening staff whilst they delivered children called (honestly) Willow, Tabitha and Miami for fencing and lessons in how to deal with proles. I have seen so many many terrible things in the helicopter parenting category not least the annual hallowe'en CHILDREN's pumpkin carving contest.

On the evidence of the thirty to forty pumpkins entered in the competition (contestants 4-11 years old) I would say that the school are in possession of some of the most gifted artistic infants the world has ever seen. I believe that at least two of the pumpkins had been handed over to professionally employed sculptors to, and I quote: "tidy up the children's efforts for them"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For f***'s sake.

He is now reintegrated with society.
