As parents, it is one thing to be responsible for setting rules for your kids, like family time, TV time, and curfews. Yes, curfews are probably one of the most difficult to impose, especially on teens that have just begun learning the perks of being young – going to parties, dating, sleepovers, and the like. It is also another thing to be stern on enforcing these curfews and their corresponding penalties when your kid violates them.
Truly, parents set a curfew because they love their children very much and they want to protect them from the late night perils as well as the effects of negative peer pressure. Such negative peer pressure can push the young teen to vices such as alcohol or substance abuse and eventually need help for an addiction. But, when they break curfew s, there may be second thoughts as to whether you should allow your kid to learn through experiencing the effects of violating the rules or just simply let it pass because you can’t stand looking at your kid sulking in the corner and getting mad at you for grounding them.
