Do you consider Sunday night a school night?

My 16 yo dd wants to go out with her boyfriend tonight and I said that since tonight is Sunday and it is the night before school starts again for this week that she could not go. Give me your opinions ladies...both my dd and I are curious how you feel.

  • Every day is a school day here.... we homeschool.....(lol; I really don't view it that way, but my kid don't have to worry about getting up for school the next day)

    When we did send them to PS (public school) then yes it was; after all they had their 2 nights: Friday Night and Saturday Night! Also Growing up my folk consider Sunday Night a school night; and Friday and Saturday Night NON-school nights.

  • A school night is any night the night before a school day. Sunday is a school night if Monday is a school day. We do not allow our daughter to be out after 9 p.m. ish on a school night unless it is something special or related to a school activities. Even if she can make it the next day, old mom can't!

  • While it is a technical school night I say let her go out but give a modest return time such as 9 or 10 pm Is she a good girl? Do you like the BF? Are they trustworthy??? Show them the respect that they have earned for a special time!!! Once a teen-age girl...Julie
    Oh, and daughter make sure you continue to earn the respect of your parents so they don't have a challenge when you ask for a few priviledges...Julie
