Overprotective? You might be becoming your parents. The latest ad.

There’s a moment we all must face in life. A time when the larger grown-up world comes knocking, with all its consequences, bills and responsibilities. We may even start to see things differently; those frivolous desires we indulged in have less appeal as our world begins to change. A transformation—slow at first, but one that increases with every responsibility we take or someone familiar.

And then one day we realize the truth: We’re becoming our parents


Parentamorphosis (par-ent-a-mor-fa-sis) noun  The process of becoming your parents—whether you’re ready to or not.
