this is a very particular problem i have.again if i say it is a problem , my brother who lives abroad says, dont think it isa problem. i have parents who live close to me all through my married life and are very concerned aboutme. they care so much for me and my family, that they think about everything, literally everything before me or my husband think or decide or atleast have a thought. i dont know what to say, but i feel i am over protected though ihave a teenaged kid, i am always conscious of somebody watching me or my actions. i feel i can never learn in my life from my mistakes. for example, my kid is going to college, and before i decide waht to do, they say it is better for a college going kid to have a mobile and some cash with them. i feel exhausted sometimes. am i overreactive or are they overprotective?
