  • Curfew on Children is Unconstitutional

Some critics argued that the curfew is an unconstitutional thing. Therefore, they required the government to interfere in the issue and guide the parents. The children need their personal space to live. It is not easy to live a life in rules. In some cases, good children are often punished due to harsh rules and regulations.

  • False Security Sense
