Who you calling a grown up?

The contrast in attitudes in the "controversy" of curfew laws is apparent just from the titles.

"A is for adult authority"
We should listen to radicals like Mr. Gendron. He echoes what we all know in our hearts. Raising kids isn't about convenience. When our kids are big enough to put themselves to bed, they need even more parental self-sacrifice. They're emerging adults, and this is the time in their lives where something has to trigger their capacity to live by values, principles, and respect.
"Huntingdon mayor stands by teen curfew bylaw"
A small-town Quebec mayor who wants to keep teens from wandering the streets of Huntingdon at night has encountered opposition from local young people -- including his own 13-year-old daughter.

At least the reporter didn't ask the five-year-old.
