An 18 year old is an adult and as an adult, has the right to visit or not visit a friend for any length of time he chooses. However, if the 18 year old is living at home, the parents may impose restrictions on the 18 year old as a condition to residing in the house.

An eighteen year old child of another person is not your responsibility. Let her mother deal with her directly.
