IME it isn't that they're "out" (as in out and about around town) later, it's that they are at a friends' house and the movie they're waching wasn't over until midnight, so they might not get home until 12:30.  Things like that.  Or prom. Prom wasn't over until midnight, and many of the kids will go out or to a friends' house for breakfast and not get home until 2-3am.  Graduation is similar.

So why wait another year?  Why wouldn't they just skip aftercare in elementary school and come home if dad's going to be there?

There are of course exceptions I think; school, work and with family.  What's a 16 year old going to do out after midnight?

I have a general curfew of 12.30 for my oldest now at 17, if he's coming home and if he's not, I need to know which friend is hosting the crew that night.  Why would they need to be out later?

But she won't be able to do that next year right, she will have to supervise her younger brother?

Not really because dh will be home about the same time or earlier.

I think midnight is usually a reasonable time to expect a 17yo to be home. But that's MY job and MY decision as a parent, not the HOA board or the county commissioners' job.

I do think that's unreasonable.

Nope, ds goes to camp.

EXACTLY!  Our HOA's reasoning is that teenagers out after midnight cause trouble and break the law.   My response was "If someone breaks the law, then let the law punish appropriately.    Don't punish - pre-emptively - those that aren't breaking the law."
