    I have no ideas! It is awful - and I need your help... please?

    Hello!
    I often face the problem of creating the ideas for particular topic. After about half an hour of thinking I decided to apply for you.
    I need to write an essay:
    "In Europe teenagers after they are 18 are supposed to live on their own. What can you say for and against living with parents?"
    I can imagine what am I going to say for living with parents, but I don't know, what to say against. I don't even ask you to check but to come up with some ideas maybe? I would be very grateful for any ideas AGAINST LIVING WITH PARENTS (OR FOR LIVING ON YOUR OWN - almost same in here).

    So we understand your 'life experience', will you tell us your age?

    PRO living with parents:
    You have a roof over your head.
    All your belongings are in place, you don't have to move them and worry about throwing out things/storing them.
    If parents charge rent, it is certainly less than you'd be paying if living on your own (no utilities, etc.)
    Mom takes the responsibility to stock things like toilet paper, laundry detergent, and linens.
    You'll never be alone at night, sitting in a lonely apartment/flat with no money/nothing to do. At least your parents will be there to talk to or watch TV with.

    CON living with parents:
    You must abide by their rules.
    You probably can't have "overnight" visitors.
    They might pry into your personal life: "If you can afford to buy those expensive shoes, why can't you help us out more financially?"
    It's difficult to invite friends over to just sit and party and watch DVDs or whatever, depending upon your parents' schedule.

    Thousand thanks!!!
    Your ideas are absolutely brilliant! Another one thing I supposed to hear is about teenagers at the age of 18 who live at their own, because it is the title of an essay...
    Entirely I think that all you've written is OK...
    Thanks a lot!

    Apparently not a teenager himself, or he would be brimming with ideas!

    At least his/her nickname is "creative"

    I have a good example. My freind is a lady, her daughter is 21 years old, her daughter's car didn't work, she wanted her mother's help. But her mother said,"you are an aldult, you should earn money by yourself." I think her mother is right.
