This is such a ridiculous thing I am almost embarrassed to write about it. My daughter's are 21 and 20 and live with me and my husband while they are in college. We have a ranch style home and our bedroom is right off the living room. My husband is a little hard of hearing.
The girls constantly complain that the TV in the living room is up to loud if they are in their bedrooms or that the TV in our bedroom is to loud if they are in the living room. If we walk out of or into our the bedroom and forget to close the door the hop up and close it. Last night my husband was sitting in the kitchen having some dessert and watching the TV in the living room (it's an open floor plan) and my the 20 year old walked in and turned the television down. Obviously my husband was furious. If we are watching TV in bed the 20 year old (whose bedroom is right beneath ours)is constantly at our door telling us to turn it down. It is not like we have it turned up incredibly high. But she wants it turned down to the point that even I can't hear it. My DH is a really easy going man and has been very tolerant of a lot since I and my daughters moved in but he is really getting upset about this and I can't say I blame him. He feels like the girls have taken over the house. Any suggestions on how to handle this short of kicking the girls out and making them live with their father? Funny thing is...I can be in the kitchen and their in their bedrooms and yell at them and they never hear that but they always hear the TV!
