What time should a 17 year old girl be home on Fri/Sat nights?
Comment if you like..
If you know the friends/boy: 12:30am
If not: 11 pm
Man yer fast...
I started college when I was 17. I didn't have a curfew. Maybe I should have...
I think it really depends on the kid.
Hard to give a generic answer. What will she be doing? Who with? Do you know them? etc..
If she is just hanging out with no general plans, then 11:30 or 12:00 would probalby be ok.
If there are definite plans - a concert, dance, etc...then maybe later.
Not to mention the relationship with her and the parents, trust level, etc.
How is she doing in school? Lots of factors.
11:00pm. Period. There's nothing else a 17 year old KID needs to be doing outside after 11pm. They're not even allowed to *work* that late, as far as I remember.
As far as my high school memories suffice (and my parents let me off the leash my junior year after a half decade of 'no freedom'), everything bad happened after 11 pm.
I agree with Kathianne if you know the boy or she is with many trustworthy friends, or the parents are home during the party, 12 or 12. 30 pm
Otherwise 11 pm IMO
And nothing good happens after 12pm..I was never called out to any high speed mva
(motor vehicle accident) before 12pm..Many times it was teens..speeding, having "fun", and just missing that curve in the road and finding that big damn tree to stop them.
