8 edited out the 'treating like a child' from the question. Although the feeling is relevant, it shouldn't be in the 'question' itself, to prevent answers telling you that you're not being treated like a child. We want the answers to focus on the behavior to stop instead. Hope the semantics help!

I'm 24 years old, have my own career, my own car but I live with my parents and my 2 younger brothers. I live my life quite independently.

One of the problems I constantly face from my parents is them treating me like a child by constantly asking me where I'm going when I'm heading out. When I arrive home late sometimes they are ringing me to ask where I am and what time I am coming home. I don't feel like I'm being respected like an adult in the household.

I have my own bedroom which is fine, we have a back door which I can come through but I still have to pass through the main lounge to get to my bedroom. There is no way I can secretly do anything in this house so that's out the equation. I do come home late sometimes, when I'm out with friends mostly but its very rare that I do. The problem is not about noise or lateness, I'm an adult now and they need to accept that. Sometimes I'm on my way to the gym and they ask me before I leave the house where I'm going, it gets really frustrating.

It gets really embarrassing when I'm out with friends and I get calls from them, it puts me off pretty bad.

This makes me feel like I'm being treated as a child, so my question is: My question is, HowHow can I ask themmy parents to stop treating me like a child by constantly calling me when I'm out or asking me where I'm going before I go out? 

I want to do this without getting too confrontational. We've had discussions about this in the past and they got pretty heated as I got really frustrated that they see things in such a narrow minded way. They said they only do it because they care, which I understand but I want them to change their treatment of me regardless.
