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.

possible helicopter sister?
My boy and my girl were at the local kid soft play area. The boy was getting a bit of grief from another couple of older kids. so he came to chat to me about it. He told me they were picking on him. My girl, who has had similar problems gave him the same advice i gave her. " punch them back, dont let them be mean"

So i think nice work mini danglesmurfette.

Until i look over. the kids (2 of them, both older mind) start on my boy. he belts one a cracker on the face. the other one throws my boy to the ground, and they start kicking him on the floor. Now im not the best tempered person ever, so this set me off. I ran over, ready to kung fu the 2 kids, when, like a ninja, my girl appeared from nowhere, king hit the first one so hard he dropped, then kicked the other one square in the nuts. she then made sure her brother was alright, before melting back into the background...

no wonder she has been getting detention recently. (She had a problem with bullies, and she tells me she battered the bullies. i didnt think anything of the battered bit until i saw this happen heh)

Helicopter sibling? or psycho? i think a bit of both.

Oh and the other two kids? went off crying to their dad. he looked ready for trouble until one of the other parents mentioned her kids were being bullied. A stern fuck off from me, a withering look from the yummy mummy, and they all left. result.

Nah - that's cool.
As long as your lad is ready to reciprocate if ever his sister is in trouble.

That's pretty well exactly what me and my two older sisters are like - you mess with one you mess with all.

I too have this sentiment.
About fifteen-ish years ago this guy I knew, and uually got on with, started hitting the back of my older brother's head. Now, my brother is and was the definition of the 'gentle giant' and could, should he have wished, squashed this insect quicker than you could say "Hulk Smash!" but let the turd get away with it. I presume this i because I knew the guy and also because my brother was three years older than him so may be thought of as a 'bully' for belting him. I on the other hand reacted, shall we say, rather badly. Screaming bloody murder I leapt at the arse-nugget and, had my friend at the time and my brother not grabbed me and sat on me, would have killed him. The only thing that's changed about me since that time is my age.
