I remember being embarrassed about having my parents around when I was in 7th grade- but who gives a shit about that now? If you want to bring your parents, for whatever reason, bring them and forget about what everyone else thinks. I mean, they are your family and now that you're an adult you shouldn't have to think about looking uncool or whatever.
This, as well as feeling uncomfortable around the parents of others. One of the indicators of said immaturity, imo, is the identifying of parents solely as parental figures and not as fellow adults in general. If one identifies them as solely "the parents" and feels uncomfortable in their presence, it is likely that one does not identify oneself as an adult on the same level but still identifies as "the child".
I probably will not bring my parents when it comes around to it for me next year nor do I believe that they would want to go anyway. However, if they did want to, I wouldn't have a problem with either of them accompanying me, and I really wouldn't give a rat's ass what anyone thought about it.
