How much leeway should my 22 year old daughter get while still living at home? She has a 3.5 year old daughter who also lives with us. She complains that I keep tabs on her and always want to know what time she's coming home if she goes out at night with friends. I say that it's just courteous to let us know what time to expect her home to lessen worrying if it's late. She thinks it's ridiculous. And, she also thinks it's ridiculous that I require her to keep a somewhat tidy bedroom (she shares with her daughter) and to ask her to wash dishes that she dirties when she comes in AFTER supper dishes have been cleaned up.
What do you think? Should I let her do as she pleases when she pleases? Or, should there still be rules?
