It’s Friday night and your son or daughter are getting ready to go to a party or it’s Wednesday and the football team has a game that he or she would like to go and watch. Now the question of curfew comes in. What time should they be home and is it too early?
Many parents have a set time for their children to be home. On a school night, the curfew for my household is 10:00 p.m. and for the weekends it is 12:00 a.m. But this may not be the case for all of the children in my household. If my oldest child is consistently late for curfew and doesn’t abide by the rules, but my youngest is always early and following the rules, we may change the curfew for one or the other based on their behavior.
So, the question of “How early is too early”, I don’t believe that any curfew that is set is too early. Curfews are set based on each child and what is best for them. You, the parent, knows what is best for your child, how much homework and other tasks need to be done, and how late they are able to stay out.
