“Since the beginning of time, teenagers have been trying to trick their parents into thinking they were home for curfew,” Willie Geist says, as he sits down with friend and fellow parent Megan Colarossi to discuss some of parenting’s greatest challenges.
Geist and Colarossi mention several strategies for enforcing curfews. There’s the old-school (an alarm clock set for curfew time, if it goes off you’re in trouble); the high tech (track kids through their iPhones); and then there’s the no-curfew option.
Give kids freedom and see if they live up to the responsibility. “It’s kind of a mind game,” Geist notes.
