Dealing With Parents When Living at Home After College

Group Therapy: Coping With Living at Home in Your 20s

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I'm 22, and I still live in my parents' house. I would love to move out, but work/school/funds prevent this right now.

This may sound silly, but lately I've been getting really frustrated because my mother asks me where I'm going, who I'm going out with, etc. every time I leave. I know she just cares, but getting 3 missed calls and a text from your mother that says, "where are you?" makes me feel 13.

Also, she will stay up until I get home, just to make sure I made it in. (Uncalled for, just go to bed.) They also complain whenever I don't come home (if I stay at a friend's house or something) I'm 22, and me staying somewhere else for one night does not affect them in any way. Moving out is not an option, and I'd really like to know how to make her stop before I go crazy. Thoughts?
