I'm in my late twenties and my parents live with us. Mom will sometimes treat me like a child. Like this evening, she and dad came back from their outing and I was lying on the couch because I felt tired while my son was playing. Mom told me to go to bed early at ten instead of doing the computer. I felt like she was treating me like a child because she told me what to do and this is something that parents do to kids. In the past mom has told me what to eat because I was eating sweets instead of something healthy so she told me eat a sandwich or something instead of those turnovers. I was 20 then and that is an adult. I am not sure if she does this because I have a disability or because that is normal for all parents for all adults. I know it's common in parents to like coddle their kids who have disabilities and be over protective and luckily mine was never like that.
Is it normal for parents to treat all their adult children like kids, disability or not? Does the same happen to you and do you have a disability or none? For those hat don't live with their parents or don't have them living with you, do they treat you like a child? What about when you still lived with them as an adult?
