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 knew a guy at school
Who at the age of 18, had never been on a train before. His parents wouldn't let him because they thought he'd be blown up by a terrorist. To put this in context, we went to school in Brighton and he lived near the train line. His parents insisted on driving him everywhere. I remember, when he was almost 19 and was about to go to University, we took him on his first train.

Unsurprisingly, he failed his first year without mummy there telling him to do his homework, and dropped out. So don't be an overly controlling parent, because your kids will never survive uni.
