Your child has plans to go out with friends? Teenagers love to spend time with their friends. Your daughter is rejoicing? Your son is a bit scared? And what about you?
Talk to her, to him about this outing. Show your child you’re interested in it. Ask him: Who’s organising the party? With whom are you going? Where will it take place?
AND also show that you want the outing to go well. Show your concern for their safety.
When you are a teenager, you must be careful when going out.
Being careful means:
- taking public transportations;
- planning beforehand to know how and with whom you are going home;
- staying with the group;
- informing someone from the group when going to the bathroom, for example;
- and abiding by the times and rules that were negotiated with the parents (more information).
This is how the party is going to be great!
Sometimes there are outing rules that are provided by law.
For example, in Nyon: SMALL MEMENTO FOR PARENTS
- Young people under the age of 16, who are not accompanied by their parents, may go out until 10 p.m., 11 p.m. during the summer
- Young people under the age of 16, who are not accompanied by their legal representative, are not allowed to enter cafés, restaurants, tea-rooms, bars, pubs and discos, except if they have a written consent form.
