So, Question time. Advice you'd give to a young person. (anything up to and including university student). Advice based on things you wish you'd done differently. If it only applies to a small group of personality types, make a note.

this is for all children who live at home, and all parents who have their children living with them.

Yes, the house belongs to the parents, and yes, they can enact the "my house, my rules" system. But usually, the rules have to change as the children get older. The thing is, most parents do it by changing the rules whenever they get around to thinking of it, or by some sort of strict age thing.

I think there should be more negotiation to it. figure out what living at home provides them, and how it restricts them, and be prepared to negotiate one thing away for another. allowances have to be made for the capabilities of their age, but try and start early on. And try to keep as few non-negotiables as possible.
