Mike & Liza’s Family Feud: Parents Just Don’t Understand

Dear Mike & Liza,

My parents don’t understand summer “vacation!” I’m back home for summer after my first year at college and I’m ready to rest and relax. I don’t think they understand how stressful college is. I don’t want to get a summer job. I need to use this time to recharge my batteries. They also don’t understand that I’ve been living on my own, by my own rules, for almost a year. I don’t think I should have to come down for meals at certain times or obey their curfew. There is no curfew when you’re in college. They need to accept that things are different now. I’m an adult and I can make my own decisions.
