I am allowed to have whatever I want over night, I have a stock of powerade I drink and a mini fridge in my room.

My kids will ALWAYS have the option to have a drink over night.
You are an adult of course you are allowed to have whatever you want at night. My youngest child is 12 years old. He still has to follow my rules.

May I observe I find it pretty amusing that some posters are arguing about what other people's children are or are not allowed to drink in their rooms at night? Do what you want for yourself and then MYOB. Geez.

It is amusing, but "MYOB" is the devil.

Nothing wrong with debating over even the most trivial practical matters. It's how you learn. You can find debate anywhere. Congress, a message board, a mechanics shop...

Haha re: MYOB is the devil. It wasn't a life philosophy to be applied to all things!
I guess I fall in the "what right do you have to criticize minute details in someone else's home?" camp. One certainly can find debate anywhere, but IMO it gets a little silly at a certain level of minutae. ETA: There's also a difference between arguing and debating, and sometimes people seem more interested in hearing their own voices than in learning anything (in any debate!).
