A woman has called out her “overbearing” mum after the mother walked in on her having sex with her partner.
The unnamed woman shared her difficulties on the Mumsnet forum, as she questioned whether her mum was being “too much”.
Other mums were quick to support the woman, with one even calling her mum “beyond strange” and another said that she “needs a hobby”.

The woman began her post by saying: “I’m looking for other people’s views on whether my parents behaviour is unreasobable (sic).
“To cut I short my parents have always been let’s say overbearing and it’s taken years to assert any independence with my parents, I’m 30 with 5 children and been living on with partner for 13 years.”
The woman goes on to reveal that her mum meets her on the school run everyday, and is very involved with picking the kids up from school.
She revealed that she is a stay at home mum, but even so her parents went to the school to pick up her children “without any consent” when it rained.
The woman continued: “Then the other thing is they will visit everyday pretty much and always unannounced.
“They knocked the other day and as we have a 5 week old I was just resting and really not wanting visitors so I ignored the door.
“My parents then rang continuously, looked thru (sic) my letterbox, came round the back, looked through my window and tried the back door and sat outside for 20 minutes until finally going.
“Then the last straw was today. Me and dp were having an intimate moment and right in the moment my mum knocks on at 10am and presses her face against the glass in our door and clearly saw too much very embarrassing and my partner got very angry about it and said she is getting too much now and as a result we ended up arguing.
“I don’t know if it’s us being unreasonable or my parents and don’t want to seem rude and unwelcoming to them but I feel it’s too much? What do you think?”

Other mums were supportive of the woman’s issues, with many taking her side in the comments.
One said: “Your mother needs a hobby. I’d also tell school that they are not allowed to pick up the DC.”
Another similarly said: “I think your parents are beyond strange- don’t they have anything else to fill their time?
“I’d be explaining straight that you aren’t always available- id also be having a strong word with the school who let my children go off with someone else without being told to.”
Another added: “Umm.. your poor husband!
“Why on earth are you letting this happen? It’s absolutely suffocating. Time to get yourself some boundaries.”
“I would absolutely and utterly hate that. I’d move. To Australia,” commented another.
