For those of you still living with your parents, what's the one rule you hate the most?

    Although it wasn't a hard and fast rule, we always were given a difficult time for sleeping in on Saturday and Sunday.

    I don't force my teens to get up on Saturday now unless we have something specific to do or somewhere to go. They always comply when I get them up for a reason, and they are very aware of their responsibilities when something is happening that I need help with or with regular chores.

    this is pretty minor, but I was not allowed sweets while growing up. My mom bought diet pop, sugar free gum, and never kept candy around. Candy and ice cream and the like were reserved for special occasions, and of course I got them when I went to grandma's house. I can't complain though, becasue I only ever had one cavity while growing up and still have very good teeth now. So, now that I am an adult and buy my own groceries, I guess from time to time I do over indulge a bit, but not much.

    I didn't have a lot of rules to live by as a teen. My father wouldn't let me go anywhere late at night... and I don't follow that now, but I didn't then either :p

    No eating in the bedroom

    No boys in my room (ok, I'm married, but I broke that rule soon after moving out)

    Since getting married and having children I have slowly begun morphing into my mother. Crazy. I think that's every woman's fate, though..
