  • I would say 9 on school nights and 10 or 11 on long as you know where she is.

  • 16 year olds can drive after 8 in your state without someone older in the car with them?

  • My curfew at that age was 11:30pm on weekends. On week nights, I was expected to be home for dinner unless I had planned afterschool activities (i.e. sports practice, drama, stuidy group).

  • Yeah, there is an age limit out here too if you are under 18. I believe it's 10pm.

  • Depends on her grades, who she is with, where they are going, whether there is school the next day, if there is a city curfew for minors...When I was that age mine was 9 on school nights and 10 on weekends but if I called to check in at 9:30 or so I could usually get it to go to 11 (the city curfew).

  • Midnight on weekends....9-10 on a school night

  • What time can she LEGALLY drive in your state? In NC - for the first 6 mos. of having a driver's license - they can't drive after 9pm.
    But typically curfew for my kids in HS - 10pm on the week nights and it depended on the activity during the weekend.
