I'm surprised so many parents here provide for a "grace period." In my opinion, if you set a curfew time for say, 10PM, but then allow the child to return home as late as 10:10PM without consequences then it sends mixed messages. You are essentially saying it is okay to break the rules as long as you only break them a little bit. If it is truly okay for the child to return at 10:10PM then why not set that as the curfew time to begin with?

What's the benefit of having a grace period?
