I've been out of college for 4 years (will be 5 by the time I go back to LS). My parents might still help me move! Either that, or a friend will. When I went to get my work visa to move to SK, I had to travel out of state to visit the Consulate, and my Mom came along with me so we could hang out together since I had to take the time out anyway. I think it's nice to have family around to share things with.

NOW, if your parents are going to do your laundry every week or call your professors when you get a bad grade or something, that's totally HS. But moving? Even visiting with you (so long as they aren't trying to control the situation but are just there for company)? That's totally normal, in my opinion.

Who cares what everyone else thinks? Unless you're acting weird about it, it won't be weird.

Think you all are weird - be nice to your parents, they raised you.

While I think people that judge the whole parent thing are often woefully immature, there is a line. Bringing a controlling parent to ASD that asks tons of questions and stomps around introducing their child to people really do need to cut the cord. I mean, you have graduated college, do you still have your mommy doing laundry for you on the weekends? Probs. for these kids.

Yup I bring home my laundry when I do come home. You mad my parents are supportive so that I can focus on important things? Im actually letting my mother help me pick out an apartment when I move since she wants to know im safe and in a good location. Doesnt matter too much to me where I live (except for a few criteria), but it sure gives her a lot of pleasure to search for and look at apartments. Remember that you (or your siblings) are probably the greatest sources of pleasure for your parents - embrace this (assuming you had "good" parents).

Many of us probably won't see our families for a while, and its a good opportunity to explore somewhere with people you care about.

Every time I move my parents help me and before they leave my mom cooks this huge meal. If it's up to me, I'll be 35 still with my parents helping me move as long as includes a home cooked meal.

Um, my mom and stepdad came to ASW and my mom and aunt are helping me move in. I really don't care what anyone thinks, and neither should you. I like having my mom around, especially when it comes to shopping for home goods and food. If people think that's immature, then that's their business. I save a lot of money when I'm with my mom. People will get over it.

Not sure why anyone would find it amusing or weird that someone's parents helped them move in. I'm bringing my parents along when I move because I want to spend time with them, because I need help moving in and don't have enough money or stuff to justify hiring movers, and because I'm going to LS in a pretty damn cool city that they want to see. In my family, & the families of most people I know, it would be weirder for someone's family not to help them move or come see them off if they were moving to a new place.
