I'm 18 years old and I still get treated like one as well. I have tried everything to get my mom to stop treating like a child; this includes talking to me like a child. She has done nothing to change. Plus, she doesn't even listen to a thing I have to say. You are still living under your mother's roof though and there's really nothing you can do about it; unless you are old enough to get a decent job that gives you a high amount of salary, and move into your own apartment. Your mother is the only person who can change herself though.
Tell her you're capable of talking like an adult and you would like to be talked to in such a manner. Be polite and if she says no don't throw a fit because that is child behavior and will disprove that you can have an adult conversation.
