Things a bit strained between you and your folks?

Are they hovering around, trying to be helpful but actually being annoying?

Are you slamming doors and doing your best ‘sulky teen’ impression at the dinner table?

After uni, coming back to job-hunt at your parents’ place can create a seriously bad vibe for familes.

Oh, and ignore the headline – at the bottom I’ve included some golden advice for graduates, as well as your parents.
