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.

My mum was heading dangerously close to that road.
She was into all that homeopathy nonsense.

I kept debating with her and eventually bought her Bad Science by Dr Ben Goldacre.
I don't think I've ever known her so fascinated by a book - she kept calling me up and quoting parts to me.

She's still into her herbal remedies and such, but I think she's far less wooly about the whole thing.
