What do you think about this?
When Erica was in San Francisco at college, we never went to visit her.

If this were facebook, I'd like your post twice, Chris!
I also wonder about the parents' lives that they have nothing better (for the lack of a better way to descibe it) to do than visit their adult offspring every single weekend for 3 days.

And, if there is a rule, there is a reason for it, that is clealry understood. Throwing out an arbitrary curfew doesn't seem to be very well thought out. Discussing and adhering to an appropriate time to be home, on a case by case basis, helps them set the limits themselves, and gives meaning and intent to the *rule*.
I don't think that I had a set curfew when I was a teen.
my hometown had a curfew many years ago when a riot broke out near the downtown, i don't think that's still in place.
What about special needs kids? Kids with autism are notorious for having major sleep issues. Luckily, my dd 95% of the time sleeps soundly through the nite. On the rare occasions she does wake up, she normally stays in bed and just plays with a toy. But you wouldn't believe the horror stories I've heard. What would they have these parents do, put a padlock on their kids doors and windows?
Hmmm....guess we'd all better become a nation of meth addicts who never sleep. Seriously, this article is beyond ridiculous!
