What time should my 15 year old daughter come in during the week?

Wondering how many nights out a week should we let her spend with her boyfriend and other friends.  Right now we are giving her 2 nights (Mon-Fri) where she can be home at 9 PM and the others she has to stay in all night.  Is this too harsh?

  • She should be at home unless there is something going on at school or she has specific permission to go somewhere. 9 unless there is a school function.

  • My kids will always have to be home by 9 at the latest on a schoolnight, unless they are working and then I will extend it to 10 (as long as their grades are kept up)

  • 8-9 pm. personally, if it were my daughter, she wouldnt be going anywhere during the week except a rare occasion. I went to work and school during the week at 16-17, and did extra curriculars. thats it. weekends were for socializing.

  • At 15 my curfew was 7 and when I hit 16 my sisters (14 at the time) convinced our parents that we needed a later curfew and it became 9 and weekends were 11.

  • Does not sound to harsh to me. Of course I was pretty strict on my children when they were that age.

  • Sounds reasonable to me, as long as the grades are up.

  • ~*Smiles*~... I'm a strict parent, bet I make you look like a saint! Hahahaha... and my parents were strict with me! But I turned out pretty well and hoping the same for my kids... i remember the rule was... when the street lights turned on we'd better be home and inside...

    I tell my kids to focus on education and relationships when they can afford them (like after college for anything serious)... We are strict
