What is a reasonable curfew on weekends for teenage daughter dates?

daughter (17) has been dating same guy for several months and he tends to stay until 12:30 at our house in rec room(where they play games, watch tv, or chat) and sometimes 14 year old daughter also joins in(with her date leaving by 10:30). Are these reasonable times for saying "good-bye"?

  • I would say those are reasonable times for the ages. But I also agree on grades and such. If they aren't doing well in school I think dates need to be cut back!

  • I would say in enough time for the 17 yr old to get home before city curfew comes into affect. In my city that is midnight on weekends.

  • I think so yes. The only problem I'd have with the 17 year old is that where I live her boyfriend would be breaking curfew if he walked home at that time.
