So heres a message to my young adults and teenagers.
As you move into your formative years and begin to build a life for yourself, the best piece of advise I can give you is..................
GET OUT OF YOUR PARENTS HOUSE!
Unless you are paying half the rent or half the bills or contributing to that house is a meaningful way, you really are a guest in someone's home. Its not yours to do as you want. There will always be rules that you have to adhere to regardless of your age.
Lets be serious, did you really think that because you are of legal age that you are empowered to do anything other than what you have been doing for the last 18-19-20 years?
The only thing that has changed is that you are now a grown person living off your parents.
If you feel any more entitled than you did last year or the year before then you are fooling yourself.
