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.

Hehe....Just the other way round
My mum (maysherestinpeace) used to leave me and my little sister on a playground while she went shopping, or locked in the car...with Peter Skellern on the fecking cassette player (Peter Skellern! ((google it...no...no...don't!!!!)) AAAGGGGHH no wonder we both love Metallica and S.O.A.D now)

However...I get a bit protective over my eldest...life hasn't dealt us the best hand of cards but we're both pretty cool I think...well....Anyway...he's nearly 17, and not got the best GCSE's (I did, didn't get me anywhere, they mean jack shti I think) but his girlfriend got about 30 I think, and now going on to do her ASS levels...and her mum is so mean to my boy!!

She gets right in his face and tells him he's basically worthless - this - even though he's been working like a proper man as a chef for the last 6 months and starting tomorrow on a proper apprenticeship...I'm proud of him...I want to kick her in the fnay, I really do...and I'm a girl!! Nothing wrong with being a bit protective now an then I dont' think...

And he's also very good with the interwebs...he's in charge of making us a youtube vid for an SOAD song that I love...I don't know how to make this happen...I just sulk and pout until it works :D

does his girl defend him
when her mum calls him worthless? if she doesn't he might as well dump her now as it won't be long until she actually starts believing the spiteful bile that comes out of her mother's mouth.

on the plus side, if she does defend him, there's a chance she might start ignoring her mother altogether.

Well, that blows.
Reminds me of a lady who I (very briefly) went out with back in high school.

She wanted to keep the whole thing a secret because her mother objected to her stepping out with a white boy. Needless to say it didn't last five minutes after I heard that...

Good on ya
I'm an Indian dude myself and frankly the Indian community here in NZ is ridiculous in that respect. You see it all the time: Indian folks in their 20's dating non-Indians secretly so their parents don't find out (for that would bring the greatest shame upon their family...apparantly).

Well, fuck that. How could that possibly be conducive to a long-term relationship?

Luckily my parents aren't like that anymore.
