Anyone with kids will know, it can be hard to accept that they are growing up and don't need you anymore. Some parents never really do accept it, and continue to leave cute reminders of their love and desire to nurture well into adulthood!

While the 'kids' on the receiving end of this coddling might be mortified by their parents behavior, we here at Bored Panda think it's hilarious and adorable, and so we have compiled a lovely list of funny examples. Scroll down to check it out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!

She might not be sad just because she wears black clothes. She's probably just making that face because her mom made her hold the balloon and she feels silly.
