  • A curfew for a 19 year old may be need if they dont come in at a decent hour and if they are off screwing up
  • Aye..if you deem it. Your home your rules.
  • It depends. Am I supporting her, providing her a home, or stitting up waiting for her to get home so that I can rest peacefully? Everyone who lives in my house is responsible to (a) the rules of the house, (2) the rules of common courtesy, and (c) each other. Even I need to report if I am going to be out late. It is common decency and the ADULT thing to do.
  • There shouldn't be any. In fact, she should be out of the house by now.
  • Depends on where they are going, and with who. But I think 12:30 or 1 at the very latest is fine for a teen.
  • No. I think you mean '19 year-old WOMAN'. Only applicable in the sense "Could you please be back by, say, 12 tonight? It would just make us feel at ease to know you're safe." Not in the sense "I'm your father and you're my little bitch and I'm a controlling prick and I want you back by twelve or I'm going to beat you up and say it's my right as a parent!"
  • i think that a 19 year old it too old to have a curfew. It's time for her to take responsibility for herself.
  • dont let it happen! my bf is 23yrs old n stuck abiding by his curfew because he let his mother impose it on him, he should have put a stop to it when he was 18
  • Nineteen is a legal adult. There shouldn't be a curfew and the parents really shouldn't care at that point.
  • well i am a 19 year old and my curfew is 10 how do i persuade my parents to let me go? I joined the air force and they still impose this rule
  • eat a lot of carrots and read a magazine while sitting on a box of cheerios. Then u grab a bat and start running in place in your bathroom while beating the toilet with the bat. This might help u in extending ur curfew.
  • I don't think a 19 year old should have a curfew but on the other hand if you are living under their roof then its their rules and you should follow them or move out.
  • Well i'm a 19 year old boy, and my girlfriend is 19 also. I have no curfew, but i am in one of two places late at night. I am home, or i am at my girlfriends. We have been dating for two years and her parents change the curfew all of the time. It's frustrating to say the least. Currently if she is with me she needs to be home by 10:30 and if she is with her girl friends it's 11:15 I don't understand her parents but here is my take on the situation: I am honest with my parents and they know i will be safe. They go to bed with out me being home. Her parents are more protective, because she is a girl i assume. And she has been somewhat dishonest in the past. I understand that they want her home before they go to bed and they go to bed early (10:30) The only thing that seems somewhat ridiculous to me is that her sister is allowed to stay out until wahtever time she wants. I think this is because her sister does not date actively, and is 21 years old. Her sister has made some smarter decisions and been more honest as far as i see. So in short, my take on it is this: The time is earlier than i would like but not completely unreasonable. I wish my time were the same as the time for her girl friends because it says to me that her parents don't trust me (but i havent given them reason to). Her sister is an unrelated case. And it's not unfair i guess her parents just love her and are concerned enough to lose sleep over her not being home. As for the person who is in the air force, you need to have a talk with your rents about responsibility because clearly you are old enough to have outgrown a curfew.
  • If you are living in someone else home, their rules apply. If you are on your own, you are an adult, there is no curfew.
  • Depends on where you are. Is it a parent making the limit yo?...
  • My daughter is 18 and she has a curfew. 11:00 on weeknights and 12:00 on the weekends. She is perfectly okay with this and as she is living at home, my rules apply. I don't care how old a son or daughter is..if they are out, you're gonna worry till they get home. She is an exceptional young lady and has never given me any trouble at all, aside from the occasional "smart mouth". Her boyfriend (also a good kid) abides by the rules as well and usually has her home at least 5 minutes early. If they are going to be late..she calls. Can't ask for more than that. :-) I am very lucky.
  • When I was 19, I lived with my parents and I did not have a curfew. I always told them where I would be and about what time to expect me home, because it is the polite thing to do, and the safe thing to do. I realize that as a lot of people have said "If you live in their house they make the rules." That's true, but I don't think parents should make those kinds of rules for adult children. By that time, the respect needs to go both ways. The parents should trust that they raised their daughter right, and that she is now old enough to make the right choices for herself. She should be adult enough to respect them enough to do what she says she is going to do, and return by the time she says she will. She should also respect that her parents go to bed early, and that they probably have to get up and work the next day, so she should not stay out too late, just to be respectful of them.
  • If she lives at home, EVERYONE in the house has a curfew or a time that we should all be in our beds. IF she is out on her own, she makes her own rules and it's her responsibility. But under my roof? My house, my rules.
  • Same as the curfew you'll put on her when she's 29.
  • my friend is 19 and her curfew is 10pm. I'm 18, my dad's a cop he lets me stay out until 2 or 3am. He really doesn't care. he used to get mad, when I was 16 my curfew was 12am, then 1230am. 17 is was the same, and then it started out to be 1am or 130am, I would never follow it though. Still never got in trouble. I am not the perfect kid, I do get into trouble here and there, but my curfew was never 10! My 13 year old sister can stay out later then my friend who is 19. I leave my house at 10pm sometimes to go out.. it's crazy! I think it is stupid 10pm curfew for a 19 year old and she rarely gets in trouble.. besides coming home like 10 mins late and her mom constantly calls her, it is crazy. Like what if someone picks her up and is driving around it causes them problems to get her home at 10 when no one goes home at 10. I think 10pm is so stupid, especially since she is 19. I can leave my house at like 11am or whenever I want and come home at 1am 2am, or whenever I want and not get 1 phone call from my parents. Unlike some of my other friends who's parents worry about them 24-7 and call them every 5 mins. My parents don't trust me, they have told me. I have gotten in trouble with the police many times. My parents hate some of my friends, and I don't have a curfew still. And my dad is a cop. But I have been grounded for weeks at a time though. So whoever has a curfew, that sucks.. I don't even wana chill with some people who's curfew is before 12. It's ridic.
  • i'm nineteen years old & STILL have a curfew of about 12:30. I understand the fact that as long as your still living under they're roof , you have to follow they're rules but i'd say i'm very responsible. I've never gotten in any kind of trouble with the law & dont plan on it. I just like to hang out with friends & dancing is my passion so clubs etc. I dont believe anyone like me or my age should have a curfew at all unless the parent feels their child is irresponsible & not ready for the world. Its not like i'd be coming home at 4 or 5 in the morning every single night. I cant even spend the night at a good friends house. i attend college & have a part time job. I pay for my own school supplies, phone bills, car insurances , most of my own food & help my parents out with several things including helping them with my little brothers. I'm doing the best I can to help out with the little money i get but having shown all my effort shouldn't i be able to get some feedback & get to hang out at a later time ? How can i persuade my mother that i'm really not a bad person , i just want to have fun!
  • None. Just let the parents know where you are, when you will be back and what you are doing. They worry and you are going to be coming into their house during the night when they are asleep. There needs to be no curfew but a person living in the house needs to follow the house rules regarding behavior and responsibilities (broadly interpreted) when the are physically present. We had 5 children get their degrees and 2 get MS degrees with these rules. Wasn't always perfect, but it worked.
  • Let me just say, I am a 19 year old girl and I have a 10:30 curfew. A little excessive? Very much so. My brother (now 22 and still lives at home)NEVER had to be home that early after he turned 18. I can deal with having a curfew if its reasonable, but 10 30 isn't reasonable. My brother was always the horrible child, back talking, failing classes, the list goes on. I rarely talk back unless its something I feel I need to, and was an honor grad and going to a local college. So, to answer the question, I think a nice midnight curfew is fine unless other circumstances permit.

  • Living at home, you pretty much have to go by the house rules..I would say 2 am. :)
  • Coming from the perspective of a 19-year-old girl: I think that you should be home at an appropriate time. It's not really nice to come home in the middle of the night and wake people up. Other people in your household may have work and/or school the next day. I see nothing wrong with respecting that.
  • depends, um is she working and going to school? then around 12 or 1 am. If she's not going to school or working then 10:00 pm, she can move out if she doesn't like it.
  • no curfew, shes 19
