I allow my children to go out 1 night a week, sometimes 2 nights a week but that is rare. Curfew is 10pm on weekdays. They go out Friday and Saturday night with a curfew of midnight.
I don't make them give me a schedule but I do ask where they plan to go and who they plan to meet. cellphones must be on at all times. My son or nephew drives but there is no going out in the snow. Sundays are fine as long as they go to Mass but there is a curfew of 10pm. Both of them work.
My son says I am the "only" mom who limits how often their kids can go out . I named off others, he said "That is because you guys are hard Catholic moms; nobody else is like that."
Just wondering (but will not change) if any other moms put limits or am I , a "Hard Catholic Mom" thing. My son is graduating a year early my daughter just scored 95% above the rest of her class. I am not changing, what I am doing obviously works.

How old are your kids?
I dont even allow that much freedom (15 yr dd & 13 yr ds).... so you are giving them a GREAT deal of freedom as far as Im concerned.

"I am not sorry to tell you that we have similar rules and we are not Catholic."
Oh geeze that came out wrong. I was trying to say I am not sorry we are hard on our boys, I hope I didn't come across as anti Catholic. My Mama was Catholic, may she rest in peace.
