1.  Are you grouchy?
Inspired by a today show segment this morning, The actual youtube clip I got from my sister a couple weeks ago, Lol:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3v98CPXNiSk

2.  What kind of videos do you like if you rent them?

3.  How do you like your eggs?

I would fiercely oppose a curfew.  That's best decided by a parent, not some busybodies in a county office.

Nope, never said that. My dd was ready to stay home and has proven that. She is very independent and comes and goes and stays by herself all the time.

So it wasn't a necessity after all?

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

Yea, when my kids were younger they didn't have a curfew either, it depended on the situation but that's changed now that they are driving.  Our state also has a curfew in place for minors, so there is that as well.  Things change a lot around junior-senior year in high school, although with the younger ages in your schools it may be later.

Not really younger ages IME. 17/18 is when you graduate. We don't have a curfew in our area and the only thing that a young driver without a full license might have is that they can only drive to and from school and to and from work.

I never said that, so your question is not relevant to my comments.

Your high school sports must be so different than ours, they have practices, meetings and such even on days off school some of the times.  What about summer?  Will they have to stay at home all summer alone together too?

Our neighborhood has a curfew.  Which I opposed. But since it exists, we have to comply.  But there are a few neighbors that have taken it too far ... sigh.

Ah, so your kids being allowed to come home alone when they were in middle school was more because you were too cheap to find someone to babysit than because they were actually ready to be left home alone.

Nope, never said that. My dd was ready to stay home and has proven that. She is very independent and comes and goes and stays by herself all the time.

So then it's not four full years, it's almost four years.  Spring math is the new math, lol.
