Dating while living with parents
As the adult child, you can determine what topics are off-limits, like dating, politics or religion.
Don’t be afraid to say, “I understand you want to help, but I am an adult and I can make my own choices.” is never fun, especially when you’re an adult.
“Be mindful of how much space you’re taking up,” Carville said.
“Are you leaving rooms (messier) than when you found them?
Are you eating all the food and not replacing anything? Retain a ‘We’re in this together’ attitude while holding on to your separate life.” To avoid conflict, she said, “stay away from hot-button issues.” This means you shouldn’t try to change your parents’ political views or beliefs, and they shouldn’t try to change yours. Try to be patient, respectful and understanding of your parents, no matter how frustrating the situation gets.
