To have parents on your back with keeping up with your studies when doing tertiary education? I mean,I'm 22 and I'm bloody sick of my parents having to ring up the tutors and find out about me. I just want to be left alone.

It's called being a helicopter parent! My dad is sort of like that, in that he calls every day, so I guess yes it is a bit usual. Although, if my parents were calling my tutors, that would drive me absolutely up a wall! I stopped telling my parents my GPA after it dropped a bit last semester. Turns out, it's easy to just not tell them!
