Dear Abby: Parents drive daughter out the door

Dear Abby: I’m a 23-year-old woman who still lives at home. I have been working for the last five years and have saved enough to live comfortably on my own. Unfortunately, my parents have forbidden me to do it because they think I’m being manipulated into it by my boyfriend, that I just want to “do whatever I want” and be out until late (although I’m rarely up past 9 p.m. and they know it), and because I “can’t stand them” anymore.

I have no privacy! My mail is opened “mistakenly” and my calls are listened in on even when I politely—and sometimes angrily—ask them not to. They have even imposed a rule that I must show them my bank balance weekly.
