This is a bit backwards it seems from most questions, but here im the adult child. I am 23 and moved back in with my parents 6 months ago. It's been nothing but a nightmare. They do help with the kids, which i appreciate a lot. But no matter what i do to help it's not good enough. I buy ALL the food for the house, and try like heck to keep things clean. Every good thing i do do, they manage to find something negative about it. And im not allowed to have boyfriends now. Am i not 23? He treats me and the kids well all I would like is a movie night to cuddle. (My parents don't like me in my room with him, and FREAK if we use a blanket to keep warm) and an occasional night out. My parents used to take the kids every weekend. And now it's like pulling out hair trying to get rents to watch boys for an hr every couple of weeks...
Am i in the wrong for wanting a night out with my boyfriend? Am i wrong for wanting to cuddle and watch a movie in my room with my boyfriend? I don't know what to do! I feel my relationship is weakening by lack of q1uality time spent together, and it's all because of my parents not allowing me time with him. -We have time together with the kids, but all relationships need alone time too right? GGAAAHHHH I'm so confused. Please help.

well the fact of the matter is that you ARE living in their home.
Once you choose to move back, you choose to live by their rules... regardless.
I completely understand about not having boys in your room. Hubs and I didnt stay (not sleep just be in) a bed room in his parents home until after we were married... and we lived with each other for 2 yrs saving for the wedding... but that is called respect.
If you want a boyfriend you have to move out... simple... that makes you and autonomous adult, not a child living off mom and dad.
btw... my guess is that there is more to the story. How young were you went you had the kids? What were the circumstances of you moving back in? Im guessing mom and dad have seen some issues in the past and are simply over reacting.
