Fair curfew for a17 year-old high school graduate??
My daughter is 17 and just graduated from high school. She was a self- described introvert until recently when she started dating her boyfriend. I'm glad she is going out and spending time with other kids her age but I feel like we are always arguing about curfews. We ask that she be in by 11 on week nights and midnight on the weekend unless there is something special going on--then we would stretch it until 1 on the weekend. My husband and I get up at 6 during the week and I need to know she is home and safe before I can go to sleep. She basically told me last night I am ruining her life and everyone stays out later than she does. I would love to hear what other people do about curfews. Like I said, she already graduated but won't be 18 until October. She will be commuting to a local University in the fall. When I lived at home I had a curfew, which I think was the same one we have given her, and that was until I moved out at 21. We trust our daughter but we would like to be able to sleep too.
