What's a reasonable time for a 13 yr old girl to be out...

Posted by   + Show Post

I have a daughter who likes being with her friends but their parents just let them be out til 1 or 2 in the morning and I just can't bring myself to let mine do it...so what do you moms think is a good time for a 13 yr old to be out??

Wow! I was going to say 9 pm. I guess I'm pretty conservative in that regard. It annoys me to no end that parents don't accompany their kids or at least know if another adult/parent is going to be around.

You would let your 13 year old take bus or subway alone at 2 am?????

They can't drive at that age so where would they be "out" to?

I don't know where you all live. But in the city where I am there are subways, and buses that run all day and night.... downtown to "hang out" around. Or locally there are parks and friends houses. From 13 till about 17 I used to chill at friends homes, urban parks or coffee shops, or close to the music television station downtown.

Uh no. I wrote midnight (to be home -on weekends) in my previous posts.

I think its a case by case basis.  If you are just "hanging out" you need to be home by dark.  If you are going to a movie, it better not start any later than 9, and ill be in the parking lot when the movie lets out. 


Yes I agree with this. It depends on what they are doing and who they are with.

 What?!  That's crazy.  I say let her be until dark, at that point I may let her stay later at a friend's til eleven or so and then she needs to stay the night or come home.

Wow reading a lot of these replies, boggles my mind. My oldest was in front of our house at 9:30 last night waiting for her friend to be picked up. Normally unless I am outside too she has to be in at 9.
