My son is 18 and a freshman in college. He is coming home for the summer and feels that since he had no rules at college and could stay out all night that it is silly that I want him to have a curfew of 2 a.m. Yes, 2 a.m. He claims I am just trying to keep him away from his girlfriend that I don't like. While it's true I'm not fond of her because of things she has done to him, this is not the reason for the curfew. If he had it his way, he would stay at her house all night, come home and sleep all day and start again. I also want him to get a job for the summer. His Dad and I both spent several thousand dollars last year for him (money I didn't have) and I just don't think it's fair that he just sleeps away the summer. He thinks I'm trying to control his life. Tried to throw every guilt trip at me in the book (doesn't work any more). What have those of you that have college kids done in the past? I don't think 2 a.m. is unreasonable. I told him most adults that go on dates come home by that time. The funniest thing he said to me was that the rules also applied to me. I'm from the Fibromyalgia board - if I had the energy to go out every night until 2 a.m., I would be sending my cure to everyone there is with my disease. Heck, since I've had Fibro, I've only been out until 2 a.m. once and that was when I was at a friend's watching a movie and she was helping me do my laundry. Please help - any advice would be appreciated.
