    That as a 28 year old I don't need a 45 minute lecture on what tog duvet to buy and I'm quite capable of arranging my own travel arrangements. It just my Dad that's like this really, I haven't lived with him since I was 13 so he still thinks I'm a kid.

    This is really amazing to see it from both perspectives!

    How old are your kids? (guessing not kids anymore )
    23, 20 and 18.

    I think as I get older I can see things from my mum's perspective more, I never ever thought I would be the sort to panic about them needlessly but it appears to be a parent thing.

    Mind you, I also think I can be a bit too laid back at times, I didn't worry about youngest going to a New years Eve party...and spent New years day at the hospital with him. The idea that he would get drunk, fall over and suffer a concussion never entered my head... he's anti alcohol!

    Poor Len! That hardly seems fair.

    They don't know whether the rank of the abelian group E(K) of points of E is the order of the zero of L(E, s) at s = 1, and the first non-zero coefficient in the Taylor expansion of L(E, s) at s = 1 is given by more refined arithmetic data attached to E over K.

    Hehe, they get a little too much at times. My ex husband if he were still living here would have other ideas but as long as they are quiet and don't let the cat out, there is no restriction on what time they come home from a night out. Only eldest does that though, middle son rarely goes out when home from uni and youngest (usually) puts studying before social stuff...I'm usually the one telling him to let his hair down more often.

    I'm not anti them drinking, youngest does the disapproval thing on that although I think his New years eve escapade with the edge of a coffee table because his legs were drunk might make his brothers not take him seriously any more. It's one of the reasons I didn't stress about him going to the party but I should have realised that a teenager, even one so anti alcohol, will do typical teenage things when there are girls to impress

    I won't stop worrying about them though....it's a parent thing unfortunately.

    Why do young millennials hate their parents so much? They've brought you up, given you free food, given you free shelter, and now you have the audacity, the unmitigated gall, to go insulting them behind their backs.

    Respect your elders and betters.

    Once we were at a relative's wedding and the groom started crying when the bride entered.
    My mum thought his tears were out of sadness and questioned it. She could not understand that you can cry out of happiness..we literally had to explain to her that you can be so happy you could cry.
    Tbh it was kinda heartbreaking that she's never expereinced that level of happiness herself.

    Is there a thing that your parents make wrong assumptions about? It could be about you specifically or about anything out there (e.g. technology, food, TSR etc...).

    1. That I can have female friends and not be dating them
    2. That I do stay behind at university to do work and not mess around...
    3. That your laptop screen is not a touch screen... :facepalm:

    Discuss.
    1. That I can use TSR and not be addicted to it.
    2. That I'm not totally obsessed with finding a bf
    3. That I do actually study at college
