Infantrymen, some straightforward advice could make a difference to this young man:
DEAR CHUCK Z: I'm a 23-year-old guy who, due to money problems, credit card bills and student loans, recently moved back with my parents. Before I moved in they made me agree to a written contract that included no drinking, no smoking of any kind, a midnight curfew, getting a job and stating that once I move out I can't move back in again. I get what they're trying to do, but I feel like they are treating me like a child. I only agreed to the terms because I was desperate. I have abided by all the rules, but they still are suspicious of me breaking the contract after five months under their roof. I want to move out, but I am still unable to do so. What can I do to make this situation better? -- DESPERATE IN ARIZONA
