My house, my rules. At 18, my kids earned the "right" to leave if they so chose.

You should be careful. Your parents have no obligation to allow you to live there or to pay for anything. If you tick them off, they can boot you out and cut you off. You can pretty much kiss college goodbye, or it will take you ten years to finish your degree.

If I had someone giving me a free place to live, buying me clothing, cooking for me, doing my laundry, providing insurance etc etc. I would certainly be very very careful to not tick them off and to make sure that they were happy with me.

You will have 50 - 80 years to assert your independence. Do not be in a rush. It is not that fun. Some things about being independent are terrific and exciting, other things are lonely and awful.
