Yeah, that seems a little over the top to me.

I can think of worse, too, but I have to ask - for what purpose are these parents travelling every weekend to visit their college freshman? College freshmen may experience some homesickness, that is normal, but is the young person being helped or hindered by parents clinging like this?

And you never answered the question, EGD - why would a night wandering toddler be "ridiculous?" It is perfectly normal, although, as I said, a bit of a pain to deal with. Whereas the couunter example you bring up does not sound normal at all.

Nobody thinks it's crazy b/c it's not what they would do.
