At college age, you STILL had a curfew? Totally unbelievable. At college age, you are an adult, so there should be no curfews at all. I believe that once one becomes 17, depending upon respective maturity level,there should be NO weekend curfews.
My mother also expected me to step back into her house rules when I was home on college breaks. Eventually I stop coming home on breaks and moved from the Midwest to California where I lived for 28 years. Some parents are slow to accept kids as grown
Uhhuh.....tell us all about it. There are some parents who refuse to evolve in their parenting role.One cannot treat teenagers and young adults as children.Parents who do this, will have children who will distance or cut off all contact with them.
Parents who keep their child tied to their apron strings also run the risk of keeping them from developing confidence to be an assertive self-reliant adult. No one can be happy living in dual worlds.
So true, I have a post on the very same subject of parents who refuse to let their adult children go. Also did hubs on the subject also.
Yeah, though it slowly extended after frustration. When I graduated I moved out fairly quickly. Most people think my curfew was crazy, too.
