When I was 16 my parents expected me to be responsible enough to determine when I got home and went to bed, they just always had to know where I was and how I got home. Yes, I had a few school nights when I got to bed really late, but then I was really tired and couldn't concentrate the next day at school and didn't repeat it for a long time.

We have never had a set curfew for either of our kids. We still go on a case by case basis.

They didn't get to go out socializing on schoolnights. They could be out with friends after school until late afternoon then home to stay. If there was a night time school-related activity or an extracurricular then they were to come home immediately afterward.

On weekends it depends on the activity. At 16 they usually were home between 11 to 12, but it could be later. Also depended on whether a parent was driving etc.

It worked okay for us.
