Common Rules for College Students
Curfews - No matter how old you get, your parents still worry about your safety. Even though you may have lived without a curfew for a while at college, It is normal to come home and have a curfew. If you disagree with a curfew time, try talking to your parents about changing it to a later time or finding a compromise.
Calling Them - Having to call them and let them know where you are is a simple request. It only takes a few minutes at most to make a quick phone call. This gives them peace of mind. However, if you feel this request is too extreme, it is okay to compromise. In any case, be sure to set up the guidelines before you go out.
Cleaning up after yourself - Even if you had all the work and cleaning done for you in the past, cleaning up after yourself and helping around the house is an easy way to get maturity points. This is an exceptional way to show you are transitioning into an adult. As you may have learned already, this is something you have to learn to do for yourself as an adult.
In any case, be sure to talk with your family about guidlines as soon as possible and know it is okay to compromise. This will make your transition easier. Some additional helpful information can be found in the article College Kids Living at Home by Robin Raven.
