Curfews suck especially when we are teens. When we are younger than 12 years old our curfew is around 8 or 9 at night. As we grow older our curfews go later and later. Right now I am about 17 years old. I do believe I have a curfew but it is not set in stone. Like my mother never said, “Oh, you must be home by 12 and no later!” She just calls me and says be home by this time. If I were to ask my mother to go out at 11 at night she would definitely say no. I think the latest she wants me to stay is like 10 or so. I did once not come home until late and she was really pissed. If I were to do it again I would be grounded until I die. Probably not that drastic but you know what I mean. Then there is my father. He sees teens out in the street hanging out and possibly causing trouble. He hates that. If he were to see me like that I would get a lecture of a lifetime. Boy I would hate that. In the summer I rather be outside than in so one day I tried staying out around 8 by myself and he was like “No, you can’t stay out past dark.” Even though parents put curfews on how late we can stay out it is understandable why they do. They don’t want us getting hurt or getting in trouble.
