Meddling is getting involved in something despite that fact that your participation is completely unwanted. If your parents planned out your entire social life, you’d be justified in accusing them of meddling.
To meddle is to “interfere in something that’s not your concern,” and it comes from a root meaning “to mix.” Meddling can be used as a noun or as an adjective, to describe annoying people who poke their noses into your business. If you’ve ever watched old Scooby Doo cartoons, you’ve heard a villain complain about “those meddling kids!”
