There's nothing wrong with them attending. And if they ask questions, who the f_ck cares. You're lucky to have them.
Not that it's so fucked up. But I, and other students who are not K-JD, would likely draw the conclusion that you are young and relatively immature. I have a good relationship with my parents, and one that I think is appropriate between parents and adult children. Just like my mom wouldn't bring her mom (who is 86) to visit, say, a potential new employer, I wouldn't bring my mom to ASW. My parents haven't been involved in my deciding to go to any school I've attended since high school (and my mom didn't come to visiting day at my high school either), and have not paid for any of my schooling. I guess it would just emphasize the differences between us. If you feel comfortable with that, go right ahead.
