Im 17 years old, I turn 18 next month and they know I am moving out soon and they have been acting weird lately. Usually after I get off work I just go and hang out with my friends, sometimes I call my parents and let them know and sometimes I just go without calling and they are cool with that too. They usually treat me like an adult and if they have a problem with me, they will come to me and have a good rational conversation about what's going on and we work it out. But last night I didn't call them and my dad called me and I picked up, he said that he was just wondering where I was so I told him that I just went to church (which is actually the truth), so we hung up and after the service I went out to eat with my brother and his wife and didn't call him assuming that he knew I was okay because I was with the church crew. Anyway, he called me again and I missed his call and he said in a message that he was starting to get pissed off and he wanted me to come home, so I called to let them know I was on my way home. When I got home he told me immediately that I'm grounded for 2 weeks. It really surprised me because they usually handle problems rationally and not spontaneously and angrily. I can understand that I should have called them but I had no warning whatsoever, if I had known it was such a big deal I would have done differently. I guess what I'm saying is if I were them I would have said that if it happened again I would be grounded. They have just become very inconsistent lately in that they always let that stuff slide and now, out of nowhere I am grounded without warning. They said I can only go to and from work and nothing else for 2 weeks and I can't have any visitors here. I think this sudden change in consistency might be because they know I am probably in my last month of living with them and they are trying to keep me with them as much as possible in that time, also I think it may be because it could be akward for them to see me growing up and they want to grasp on a little more to parenthood and have a sense of still being in control of my life. What do you guys think? Did they do the right thing? Are they out of line? Am I out of line?
