  • I go out rarely, and no it's not immature, it is being youthful, having fun, getting out, getting adult time, a break.

  • No, its not immature at all. I mean, if you were ditching your family a few times a week, then yes, its immature, but once every month or so? Absolutely fine and let's face it, GOOD FOR YOU. I get together with the girls a few times a year. We'd probably do it more if it was easier for us to schedule, we are all so busy with our families its so hard to nail down dates.

  • I think it's immature to want to go out all the time, and find random different people to watch your kid(s) just so you don't miss a night out, but a night here and there if the kid is with someone safe and trusted is perfectly fine and actually NORMAL.

  • I go out with my friends or we go to each other's house. I find it relaxing and always nice to have conversations that are not involving children or husbands. :)

  • I never did go out on the town. I did continue to see friends at their place or ours, or going out for a meal or a concert with them.

  • I make it a point to go out with my girlfriends at least twice a month. My children are also older, but I need that social interaction and the time away. It is something that makes me happy, and helps me relax. A night on the town typically consists of dinner and then karoake with the girls and sometimes dancing. I go on Wednesdays it seems to work best, and then my weekends are all family time.

  • Every now and then I go and watch a movie with a friend but unless they come to my house I don't normally get to see anyone. Money is very tight here and movies a free for me. And I don't think it is immature to go out every once and a while. If you do it all the time then it could be considered immature.

  • There are certain days that my husband will go out with his friends and the girls and I will do a girls night and other nights that I go out with my friends and he does a daddy/daughter thing other nights we do a date night but we also have family nights yes it is important the days vary because of schedules

  • It is ok to go out sometimes, but I don't do it and I think it it is immature to want to go out more than once a month or so...jmo. Especially if you are leaving your kid(s) with you rparents all of the time or something like that. Depends on what you mean by going out, too. If you are getting smashed and going home with random men or something, then yea, it is immature, (and dangerous).
