Is it okay for a 14 year old to go out in Summer vacations out until the lastest 10 pm?(weekdays). When school starts the latest on weekdays 9:30? What about on weekends 11 pm? To parties until 12:30? Is this okay?

It depends on what they're doing. Granted, I don't have a 14 year old yet, but there won't be any just 'going out' to go out. A specific set of plans (like a movie, well supervised party, etc...) we'll take on a case by case basis. Right now my oldest is 11 and the only 'late night' activity is our church youth group and she's home at 8:30.

School nights (except for special occasions or youth group) I can't imagine having them out past 8 because that doesn't work for ME. Weekends... again, it will depend on what it is that they are going to do, who with, and where they will be (and who will bring them home...).

In reply to that:

1) Summertime: 9:oo pm because no parent is going to want to wait until 10 pm to go get their kid to bring them home.

2) School nights: Only if its school related or they go with parents. Usually most kids are doing homework.

3) No parties. Most of those end up not being supervised by the parents there and there is alcohol involved and who knows what else. Now if something like a birthday party that is supervised that is different and those mostly end up being over night ones anyway.

Thanks. But my real question is until what time should a 14 year old be allowed to be out?

My fifteen year old is not going to parties. Nor is he staying out past 10 pm on summer nights or anything of that nature. A fourteen year old needs to go to things that are under the supervision of a parent or two.
