What do you think of when you hear the word curfew? Is it a time that your parents have set for you so you dont stay out late? Why should teenagers have curfews? Why does the law get involved with you curfew? When I think about the word curfew these are the questions that come to my mind. As a teenager I abide by a curfew. I am not against curfews that your parents have assigned you, just when the law gets involved with it. Many police go around at ten o clock p.m. making sure that no kids under eighteen are on the streets or even entertaining places. I think that it is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. Police officers go around acting like they are your parents, when actually your parents know you are out having fun. It would make more sense for a police officer to go around making troublemakers and kids on probation go home.
Why should many of us innocent teenagers suffer for having a curfew? Police officers go around trying to make a point, but what they do not realize is that teenagers dont listen. They tell many teenagers to go home, but what ends up happening is they just go somewhere else to hang out. Teenagers these days will just rebel. We teenagers have a point, why should we go home if a police officer tells us to, if our parents let us go out and we are not doing anything wrong. Another thing that gets to me is why the curfew law applies to teenagers sixteen and seventeen years of age. An average teenager gets his or her licenses at age sixteen.
The Essay on Why Teenager Rebel Their Parents
Many people often have argument with their parents when they are teenager. People seem way more hard to deal with when they are teenager. Especially with parents and teacher.

Usually by the time you are sixteen you are mature and responsible enough to drive and stay out with friends or even family. Drivers go places to have fun and these curfew laws take this opportunity away from us. Even if you are younger than sixteen and your parents are willing to let you stay out after ten o clock p.m. then what is the problem? The main disadvantage of a curfew is the time. You are only allowed to be out until ten o clock p.m., these days it seems to early. Most teenagers get done with their dinner, housework, and homework by nine o clock.
What if we want to go on a nice walk at night to look at the stars with our relatives, friends, or even our boy/girl friends? We cant because the curfew law applies to us. What happens if your parents approve of you going out after ten o clock p.m.? You cant because the curfew law does not allow you to. I believe your parents have more power over you to tell you what you can and cant do. This is why I do not support the curfew law, only if your parents assign it. In the past I have encountered many problems with the curfew law. For example at the Irvine Spectrum.
If you are relaxing outside of the shops in the evening after ten o clock p.m. you have the police officers threatening to take you home. Another situation I encountered was when I went to this party with my family and friends. There were cops everywhere. They threatened my friend and me, that if we took one more step over the line in the sidewalk they would call our parents. What the cops did not know was that my parents were standing ten feet away from us. My friend and me were not even causing any trouble.
It seems to me that we are being discriminated against. Is it just because we look young? Or do we just have the reputation of being troublemakers? Many of us teenagers are deprived of our curfew. We are getting curfews because a few teenagers have caused conflicts and trouble at night. These few teenagers who have decided to step out line have ruined our image. Why cant we go out and have the police officers send the troublemakers and kids on probation home? If we are not disturbing the peace of the environment or causing trouble then why cant we just stay out? Parents are responsible enough to make their childs curfew. Why should the law get involved with parental duties? I feel strongly about curfews.
