I have a 14 year old boy in Miami, entering high school this year. He wants to go out with friends and finds that my enquiries are "ancient" and annoying. How often should he go out and until what time at night?

Thank you Shawn,
this is very helpful. It actually reinforces my stand. So I am not the only one.
Thank you again

Well, what are your house rules?

Mine, on a school night, for a 15 yo, is home by dark. On weekends, as long as he keeps in touch with us about his plans and whereabouts, whenever.

So, if he finds you "annoying", you can remove privileges...which would be really 'annoying' to him...

In other words, he should be allowed out as often as you are comfortable, for whatever time limit you set, within reason. I'd have to say a 7 pm curfew would be a bit much ;-)
