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.

No win
He's damned if he does, and damned if he doesn't. The only way through it is to set out the options to his daughter - without judgement or spin, and then tell her he will support her whatever her decision. On a practical note if she doesn't have a mobile, get her a cheapie PAYG so that she can always send up a distress flare if needed.

It's a tough one eh?
She's sorted for a mobile - he makes sure she's got credit each month too. She's also got a few family members looking out for her and a social worker to talk to should the need arise. With her dad there if she needs him, hopefully that's all the support she needs.
