Do you agree with unsupervised kids under 18 being out after 9p.m. on school nights? Why or why not?


Would you allow your child to "hang out" anywhere outside your home or their friend's homes without parental supervision or do you allow your child(ren) more freedom? Do you worry about them if they have more freedom?

    Good point about very young kids. Also in the news in a neighboring city, just within the last 8 days or so, a toddler was found roaming the streets alone and was taken into child protective services. What is wrong with people?

    I also don't have kids but am concerned by the lack of supervision that I see from some of those who are. Even when there is a guardian with the child, the guardians are not responsible or trustworthy and are just barely 18 or 19 themselves.

    Thanks for re-iterating that it's the RESPONSIBILITY of the parents to be strict in such cases. Too many parents are falling down on their jobs.

    Sounds like you are a good parent, "wandering around the streets unsupervised" is a common problem in the US. A surprising number of parents here in the US allow this to happen to their child's and the community's detriment.

    Parenting is hard work and the reward is seeing your child grow up and be able to take care of themselves. I also believe kids of this age need supervision but many don't...and I'm not even a parent! Many kids get into trouble due to this.

    I agree and asked this question after seeing a news report about a 13 and 17 year olds being shot (the 13 year old died) on Memorial day just before 11p.m. They lived in a bad neighborhood and were standing outside a convenience store.
