Terry Castle: Don’t Pick Up: Why kids need to separate from their parents
Break up with your parents:

Indelibly etched on my brain, I tell the class, is a phone call I received one winter break from the aggrieved mother of a student to whom I had given a C-minus in a course that fall. The class had been a graduate course, a Ph.D. seminar, no less.

If you are in graduate school & your mommy calls the professor to complain about your grade: you are doing it wrong.
