Rules for living at home

So I was talking to my friend yesterday. My baby and I live with my parents. She lives with her parents too and has a baby as well.

We were talking about the rules our parents have for us to live with him and she said mine are much more strict than hers.

My parents rules have not been hard for me to follow. Here's what they are.

1. I pay rent and for some of the groceries and of the utilities.
2. I have to be home by 8 o'clock
3. No friends over unless they are home, and definitely no guys.
4. I make dinner every other day.
5. No dating
6. House quiet by 9 o'clock. No music or anything.
7. No sleeping in or being lazy. On weekends I clean the house
8. Sundays we go to church as a family.
9. I can see friends once a month but I still need to be in by 8.

My friends parents are very different and they let her date. But she has 2 babies. I can't imagine having 2. One is enough for me.

When my daughter was born my parents wanted me to have my tubes tied but the doctor won't since he says I am too young.

What do you think of these rules?

I think they're unhealthily controlling.

Can only see friends once a month? Socially isolating.

It seems they're charging you as an adult, and treating you like a child.

If you pay rent, groceries you skid be able to come and go as you please and enjoy your space.


They don't actually want you to grow as a person though I bet.

Do you work outside the home? How old are you? How old is your baby? I understand most of these but not being able to have friends is silly. Same with dating. I see their intention is for you to focus on having baby in bed at a proper time. Why no music, tv? Can't you put earbuds in or keep it low? Many new moms get the mommy blues and this wouldn't help. However, if you are fine with them then it doesn't matter.

I'm not complaining. My friend thought the rules were strict. I follow the rules and am fine with them.

17 and a mother is not a child.

She has responsibilities and duties now. Treating her like a child means she stays one.

Treat her like the adult she should be, more likely to get an adult.

At her age I was in another country by myself and doing fine. They need to let her grow up.
