Hot on the heels of America's massive college-admissions bribing scam, The New York Times is out with some shocking statistics on how much the parents of adult-age children are still running their kids' lives. Surveying 1,508 18-to-28-year olds, as well as 1,136 parents of people in that age bracket, the outlet found that a whopping 76 percent of parents "remind their adult children of deadlines they need to meet, including for schoolwork," while 74 percent "make appointments for them, including doctor’s appointments." Researchers also found that 22 percent of parents helped their kids "study for a college test," although it's unknown if Felicity Huffman was among the parents surveyed.
