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.

That would be how I'd look at it
Would be an easy situation to get wrong on his behalf - doesn't want to be seen as preachy and controlling. And its true that people have to learn their own lessons in their own way; all he can do is offer advice and she sounds pretty switched on and clued up. I mean, if she was a bit of a muppet it may be different. But she doesn't sound like she is so I'd suggest this as the way to go.
