So I have been visiting my family for the past few days for the first time in a while. The first thing I notice is the way parents stick with the controlling attitude over their kids, even with me. I am 21 years old, sure it isn't that old, but I think it is old enough for my parents to accept that I have my own life. When i come home, I feel like I am in high school again. My dad will come into my room in the morning, start picking things up that are scattered about the floor, and start telling me what I should and shouldn't do for the day; this is really annoying. But despite the fact that I hate when they do this, it does brings up an interesting question to me; is it a parents role to always feel as the guide in their kids lives, regardless of the kids age? Does the parent in them stay constant from the time you are born to when you have a beard?
