Enough is enough!

My parents have officially worked my last nerve! For whatever reason my parents are under the impression that I have regressed back to 9 years old. They want to do everything for me. They want me to check in with them once a week. They want to take responsibility for EVERYTHING I do. I appreciate the thought but, enough is enough! I am 19 years old and would like to be treated as an adult. I know my parents want to make sure I succeed in life, but they don't want to let me do it my way. It's as if the older I get, the more my parents don't want to let me go.
1. Am I wrong to want to make my own mistakes and clean up my own messes?
2. Is it ok for me to only want to call for their help when it's absolutely needed?
3. How do I get them to realize that they did a great job raising me and it's ok to let go of the reins?

i think they're scared that something bad might happen to you because they're not around.
You're not wrong for wanting to take control of your life. Embrace it. I took a long time to fly the coup, but I look back on it and feel it was the best decision I've made in a long time. I was doing them and myself a favor.
Things are much more relaxed.
Damn, i just got my next idea for a post....
