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.

Does this count...?
Yesterday morning, I was doing the washing up, whilst my kittens played in the garden, climbing trees, eating grass, crawling under thorn bushes etc... They've only just been let out on their own, and we have to watch them, but I turned around for one second, and all of a sudden they both burst through the door screaming.

I was a bit shocked and nearly dropped a plate. I looked out the window, and saw a massive black tom cat by the back door had chased them in and was about to come in himself.

Being the over protective proto-parent, I chased it down the garden brandishing a flip flop.

If I see him again, I'm gonna throw rocks at him. However, does this mean my cats will grow up as wimps, or did I do the right thing??

Definitely the right thing :)

My cat does the opposite - he's a big ol' tomcat and one night was making a helluva noise wanting out.
"Hmm," I thought "Must be some nasty cat about he wants to chase off." and so I let him out.

Imagine my surprise (and this is 100% true), when he ran down the garden, up onto the wall, where about 4 cats were sitting waiting for him. They all jumped down and went off.

My cat's in a gang...

I would have done the same thing. Tom cats have a real tendency to be really bloody mean to babycats so I would have done it too.
And I agree, PICS NAO. :)
