How late is too late for your teenagers to stay out at night?
I insist on an 11 o'clock curfew for my 17 year old but some of her friends seem to be allowed to stay out later. Do your kids have a curfew and if so, what is the latest you'll let them stay out?
I agree with teens having a firm curfew, and I believe that as they demonstrate responsibility by consistently meeting that curfew that it's good to reward such behavior by bumping that curfew an hour later every year.
For example: 11:00 at age 17, 12:00 at 18, 1:00 at age 19.
At 2:00 I think you reach an impasse since one of the following will be true for you: Nothing good happens after 2 a.m., or at this point your child is probably no longer living under your roof.
My daughter will be 17 years old next month. At the moment, we insist that she is back at home by 10.30pm each night. She argues all the time and tells me that this is unfair. Her dad and I spoke at some length about her curfew time and have decided to raise it to 11pm when she reaches her 17th birthday which is in 16 days time. I think that 11 o'clock is very reasonable, and she has to be given more freedom. I worry about her, but know that she is growing up and should have more responsibility. Some of her friends are allowed to be out til 12 and 1am, but I have told her that this is not on, as she is being trusted to be home by 11pm.
that some of her friends are allowed to be out till 1am and including her. I think she very responsible and I trust her. She know right from wrong. She is a smart girl she getting older and she a good girl. So I allowed her to have some fun with he
I think curfews are a good idea, and there is little reason for anyone to be out after midnight.
On school nights, unless it was a school activity, they were home with us. Weekends, I think 11PM is very reasonable depending on what they are doing. We insisted on always knowing where our daughters were. They had a lot of freedom as long as they were honest and we knew what their plans were.
Kids can argue all they want but they really don't have the life experience to know what can happen in the late night hours. That is our job to ensure they are safe and I think 11pm is very reasonable.
that some of her friends are allowed to be out till 1am and including her. I think she very responsible and I trust her. She know right from wrong. She is a smart girl she getting older and she a good girl. So I allowed her to have some fun with her friends. But she know not to text while driving and not to drink I trust her. She getting to be adult and i want her to experience life.

Should I tell my friend her husband is having an affair?My other friends say she won't believe me, and I'll only end up looking like the bad girl! But if it was me, I'd want to know.

Wow. This is the first time I've read this forum category, and I swear my blood pressure has got to be twice as high as it was before I started reading. I'm banning myself from this entire topic. It's sad, because I had some ideas I wanted to share from a liberal and inclusive...
