I get why she was embarrassed about getting her cosmetic stuff from her parents' bulk stash, but I dunno maybe it's because we didn't grow up with much or because me and my parents were close, but as long as she had their permission I don't see the big deal. It is more adult and responsible to shop for yourself--I know "borrowing" makeup from my mom was a big part of my growing up. It's not wonderful, but I'm not alone. I just feel like it's good to save money where you can and the adult thing is to have permission and to not just take. Having permission is acknowledging that you aren't under their financial care. They spend their money, you spend your money. It's not a bad example, I just don't think this is the worst thing to do if you have the option.

That tidbit about writing down the things you notice yourself improving on is GREAT advice! It's a self-esteem boost, reassurance that you do have a clue what you're doing, and a great way to catch yourself if you're slipping back into old (bad) habits! Thanks 😁

Wouldn't it be better for parents of adult kids still living at home to make the kid pay a certain amount at the time.the bills were actually due. And rent on the room. As well as rent on the storage area you use. So that when you get out on your own it's not a shock.

Money makes relationships sore. Doesn't mean children blindly spent their parents money or their own for that matter. And as humans we're capable enough to make that shift when the need be. But if parents happen to be not acknowledging your need for privacy and expect you to always stay under their umberalla; codependency of sort, your suggestion maybe useful there.

Cleanliness was one for me. My mom died of colon cancer, and was on chemotherapy while living at home my senior year of high school. So my siblings and I had to keep the house as clean as a hospital. Had an aversion to it after that on top of the fact that I'm a dishwasher. I clean everything I see 40 hours a week. Fortunately, I've come to terms with at least the cleaning bit, and have a reliable routine for myself now. So glad my apartment is small and easy to keep clean!!

It makes me feel so much better to hear you say all those effects of constantly having the tv on. At my parents house we watched tv here & there but not excessively. Now I live in a household that wakes up & immediately turns the tv on. The constant background noise really bothers me & stresses me out. I also can't stand eating in front of the tv. So weird.

Even though I live with my parents, if I want to eat, I have to cook. For a long time its been my job to plan out meals for the week, because Im mostly the only one who cooks. My mom gave up around my early teens and honestly Im glad. Making sauces and flavoring things is awesome. No more plain chicken thrown in the oven for me. Plus even though the point of living with parents is to save money I still payed them 'rent' to help cover expenses. Now that Im going to live by myself Im just worried I'll budget everything correctly now that my expenses arent just giving my mom some bucks and everything else for essentials/savings/frivolous things I dont need.

I started buying soap and shampoo for myself and when I asked my parents not to use it because it's expensive and I cant afford every one in the house they just laughed and said "But we share everything with you." Is this justified? I feel betrayed. Why do I feel this way?

While I love this list and you make really excellent observations, I feel I should comment on how some of these should be considered from another perspective aside from the "maturing from adolescence to adulthood" one. Food: while a lot of young adults will naturally start to notice that eating a certain way makes them feel worse than another and because of budget and personal health start to gravitate towards being conscious to making better choices, this isn't such a cut and dried issue for a large number of people. For those using food as a coping mechanism, to people with EDs to people coming from poverty using hoarding food for self-soothing, I think it's important to point out that food buying/eating habits and eating habits are not simple maturity issues. Clothes/home decorations: similar to the food, both of these can be used a self-soothing techniques. Observing your personal patterns to find out if you buy to feel security or to reward or for a simple need is a good way to assess yourself, especially if you are buying things when you have no need, room or the finances to buy. Again, children coming from poor families often struggle with finding a balance here when restrictions are removed (they get their first home without parents or their first job). It's not a maturity issue but a reaction to trauma and should be handled with re-parenting and new self-soothing techniques.
