I can sympathize with all the kids whose job prospects are being ruined by their helicopter parents. However, your parents meddling makes hiring managers worry they'll meddle in your daily work. "Mom won't let me use her car" & "My kid can't come in for their shift because they're grounded" HAVE happened. If you can't get your parents to understand that they are the problem, we'll hire someone who can. We ARE sorry about it, but we can't have your parents causing problems for the business.
