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.

Well it seemed appropriate to me....
When Boy1 (aged 4 ish) informed Mrs Ferret & I that there was an Easter Bonnet competition being held in school we made the niave assumption that we would have time to actually make a hat with him. Alas this was not to be the case as he only told us about 20 minutes before the start of school on the day of the competiton.

Being too soft earted to allow him to be the only one in his class not to have some sort of festive hat I looked around the house to see what I could craft for him that would embrace the Easter/Spring time theme. What could be more Eastery than a crown of thorns? A quick trip to the pyrocantha bush in the garden and the headwear was created. Boy went into school and all were happy (if somewhat bleeding). Upon collecting child from school that afternoon his teacher did ask if I could try to avoid making costumes that actually injure the wearer.

Not sure if this makes a helicopter parent for dropping everything to make a hat or not.

who the fuck do they think they are? Fucking teachers, trying to tell us how to raise our kids.

The Daily Fail has taught me to stand up for my rights and that no intellectually arrogant "professional" will tell me how to look after my own children.


etc etc
