To do chores anymore woohoo. By the way i only turned 18 2 days ago and I'm so excited i don't have to do chores or listen to my parents any more. And another good thing is i can Watch 18+ films show now or go watch anything on the cinemar it feels so great.
YOU ARE SO KEWL! Boy are you gonna miss mommy and daddy when you get to college! News flash - professors don't do your laundry and roomates / housemates will kick your *** if you don't keep a neat room, clean, maintain the bathroom, etc your share. Major reality check coming your way in 5, 4, 3, 2,......
Dumb. Im 18, senior year, Have to do chores, pay rent, keep a job, and do all my schooling, then move out after highschool. AND listen to their rules. Its their roof and their rules.
LOL.... you sound like an adult??!
You really think you don’t have to listen to your parents anymore or help around the house anymore because you are 18? Sorry to disappoint you but yes, you do. Now that you are 18 they can legally kick you out. They no longer have to financially support you. You can do whatever you want and ignore whatever your parents say once you are no longer living under their roof, or, unless your parents are complete pushovers, it’s out the door for you. Before they could only punish you, now they could just throw you out if you refuse to help or contribute. Also, being a legal adult isn’t all fun and games. The older you get the more responsibilities you gain. If you attempt to ignore them or run away from them life won’t treat you very well. Sounds like you are in for a hard slap in the face from reality soon
If anything, it’s the other way around. While you’re under 18, your parents can’t do much if you refuse to do chores - they can punish you, but you can just ignore their punishments. But once you turn 18, they can easily kick you out and stop financially supporting you.
I’m under 18 and I refuse to do chores because my parents can’t force me to, but once I’m 18, I’ll have to do chores if I still want to live in their house.
Chores? LOL! Reality is really going to slap you in the face. I'm from NJ. I was in the Army in CA at 17 and living in Europe at 20. Mom was nowhere around to do what she did for so long.
just wait, you will wish for good old days soon
I agree it's cool to be 18 but you don't have to do chores? Are you living at home? Are you paying them rent? Because if you are living under THEIR roof, they could demand rent, they could kick you out and make you live on your own.
If I had a child as ungrateful as you, I would not put up with him/her living in my home, doing nothing and not listening.
You don't sound like you're mature enough to handle being 18. Responsibility comes with it.
Guess it's part of growing up. But there's a phrase "always wanting what is not." Soon enough you'll crave the structure of life you followed before, and maybe your parents.
So, you're just going to be a total, ungrateful douche nozzle and do nothing until you move out?
If I were your parents, I 'd say good riddance NOW. Jerk.
You don't have to do chores when you move out. You have to do all the housework, not just a few chores here and there.
But you can always relax with that 18 film after it is done, so look on the bright side.
And your parents do not have to let you continue living with them or eating their food or using their washer and dryer for your clothes.
