Asked by BrittanyAnne (1points) March 10th, 2008 from iPhone

I want to go out past my curfew so that I cab watch Lost, but I don’t know if I should ask my dad because I’ve been able to stay out past my curfew a lot lately.

If he’s let you out past your curfew lately, it’s because he thinks you’re behaving responsibly and you’re worthy of the trust. If you haven’t been abusing his goodwill, I see no reason not to at least ask.

When I was in high school, I didn’t have a set curfew, but I had to tell my parents what time I expected to be home and I had to be home by that time, no excuses. This was actually a very smart move on their part: this way, if I was out late, it was only my fault, because I could have told them I was going to be out later or I could have called to let them know.

Ask him. The worst that can happen is he says no.

And if he says “no” I wouldn’t put up a stink about it. Maybe he’ll think it over and change his mind.

If he says no, you could offer a compromise. I think he will respect that.

As a dad, the best thing in the world is when my son talks to me… about anything and everything. Dads want to be engaged and involved, and that means involved in letting their kids grow up, be responsible, and be independent. If you chose to be those things, give your dad the chance to give you the chance. make sense?
