2) As a parent/when you are a parent, how late do/will you let your kids stay out?
1) I used to be able to stay out until all hours, and I did some questionable stuff but never when I was out really really late, I was always home by midnight on those nights, but lately I have been going out for tacos at 3 AM and they apparently don't like that even though I am not doing anything slightly illegal and the city curfew doesn't exist if you're 17 and have a new license, which I am and do, but now they backed it up to 1 AM for no reason at all. Nothing new has happened with me and I haven't done anything illegal in a long time and I think they should know that.
2) I am going to trust my kids until they give me reason not to. I think I'll have a 3 strike policy and like each strike gets them an hour later. Provided that the city doesn't give me a curfew, I will let them be out until 2 or 3. Of course I'll want to know who they're with and what they're doing and if they give me reason to question, I'll let them know I have suspicions and make threats and stuff and make sure they're with credible people, but if they're with credible people I see no reason for them not to be out all night if they want to be.
