Oh so my parents seem to think. As I prepare to go off to my junior year of college I find myself resisting the urge to scream. Like most 20-somethings I have reached the age where my parents, despite best intentions are driving me insane. I understand that I am very lucky when it comes to parents: My parents are not divorced, love and care about me, and truly support me in my crazy endeavors. It's the little day to day, simple tasks that my parents have no faith in me to complete. Which drive me up a wall. While I still am financially dependent, I am now capable of doing my laundry and cleaning my room without being reminded every 10 minutes that they need to get done.
Discovery: parents, no matter what age you are, have an amazing power to make you regress to the age of 10. You can be the most responsible, successful adult and parent will still find something to nitpick. Just ask Amy Borkowsky who's literally made a career with the messages her mother left her on the answering machine. Amy takes it stride though and carries on. But she's also moved out of her parents' house.
