Kids are utilising their mums' and dads' parenting skills into adulthood to help them run their busy lives, a survey has found.

Almost two thirds of parents still do chores for their time-poor grown up off-spring, with more than a fifth admitting their 20 and 30-something kids have them doing their washing, cooking and cleaning.

An astonishing 22 per cent of grown up children even get their mums or dads to make their doctor's appointments for them!

And it's not just chores that parents are indulging their adult 'babies' with - nearly half dish out an average of £1,800 a year to help their kids pay for cars or holidays.

Churchill Insurance polled 2,000 parents for the survey. Spokesman, Matt Owen, said: "Some are treated like personal assistants by adult children."

Do you rely on your parents for help running your life?

Is that what parents are there for?!
