    I agree that an 18 yrea old should have as much privacy as desired. I certainly didn't - not until I moved out at 19. My sister didn't, and she moved out at about 24. I think if you're willing to have your adult child live in your house, it should be a respectful adult relationship between you... not "well you're in my house, so you must do A B and C to my liking".

    Everyone is assuming they were actually having sex, they may not have been!

    When I was 19 (really not that much different from 18 really), my bf & I would hang out in my bedroom all the time. My parents only rules were he (or both of us) leave once my parents went to bed (about 1030). We never dtd while my parents were there - no way!

Yes it would have been nice if they could spend five minutes with their lovely aunt and uncle and messy hair is ok

    Im very particular about the example my older kids set for my younger kids. So no I probably wouldnt be ok with scenario of op.

    Im aware that at that age they are most likely sexually active but I dont need that fact constantly in my face.

    And I guess that primarily I look at it from the point of view that if say they were in their 30s it would be socially unacceptable to spend all day "watching a movie" in the bedroom iykwim

    Haven't read any replies. Better that the 18 year old have a root in her bedroom than in her boyfriend car and get caught by the police (**having flashbacks!!)

    DH and I were talking about this the other day.

    I'd be happy for our girls to have their boyfriends stay over (and have door closed) at 18... Hell even 16! My parents didn't allow it so I snuck around when I was younger. I'd rather my kids feel they can hang out safely at home than be sneaky.

    We didn't allow boys to stay over but certainly in her room during day no biggie. She moved out after her 18th. She is a adult and makes her own decisions and no matter what they ate I stand behind her to support her. Even if I don't agree with them I am still there to support her.
