A key to making curfew work is to involve a child in the discussion, says Sam Fabian, a parent educator at Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital of the Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Daughters. Teens can offer feedback on time deadlines and rules for outings, while parents can explain that curfews can be flexible but also will be based on how well a child follows the guidelines and takes care of responsibilities at home or at a summer job. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously the parent always has the final say, but as kids prove they will behave well - get home on time, check in when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re supposed to and not lie about where they are - then curfews might be more negotiable,â&#x20AC;? Fabian says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kids should also understand that curfew is about keeping them safe.â&#x20AC;? So what time is right for what age? Parents should learn the legal curfew in their locali-

ty, and some use general guidelines such as 9 p.m. for a ninth-grader, 10 p.m. for a 10th-grader, and so on, with midnight an absolute cutoff without very special circumstances. However, a much better approach is to consider each child and family situation individually, says Michele Borba, an educational psychologist in California and author of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Big Book of Parenting Solutions: 101 Answers to Your Everyday Challenges and Wildest Worriesâ&#x20AC;?. That includes many factors: age, maturity, past trustworthiness, personality traits - is the child generally levelheaded, a risk-taker, or susceptible to peer pressure - friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; behavior, the planned activity, neighborhood safety and sleep needs. Other parents with kids of the same age also can share what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying and what has worked well.

ZZZ0\7LGHZDWHU0RPVFRP_- 8 / <      _


In general, Borba recommends a baby step model, with parents always aware of where a child is going, who she’s going with and what adults will be around. If a child wants a 10 p.m. curfew, say, start at 9 and see how she does. Does she get home on time and check in as requested, whether at certain times or whenever she changes locations? Does she respect rules such as not going to houses where no adult is present, not drinking or calling for a ride if she feels unsafe? If a parent calls the place where she’s supposed to be, will she be there? “What you’re trying to do is slowly help the child learn how to handle life without you,” Borba says. “They should understand that curfew is an earned privilege, not a right. Say to them, ‘This is you proving to me that you can handle it.’” With all those variables in play, even siblings in the same

household might have very different curfews, Borba adds. “You might have one child who gets to stay out until 11 and another who you’d never let out of the house after dark,” she says. By the same token, a tween on a well-lit cul-de-sac might be able to stay outside longer - assuming good behavior and tolerant neighbors - than a teenager on a dark or traffic-filled street. Curfews also can vary based on the activity and friends involved, so special occasions with well-known friends might mean extra time. Parents and teenagers can make compromises, too. “Maybe you alternate between 9:30 and 10:30 p.m. on weekends,” Fabian says. “Be flexible, but revisit things if kids aren’t getting up and doing what they need to do during the day. Even in summer, kids need routines.” Tweens and teens could use refreshers on basic safety during curfew discussions, such as

always walking with a friend and not going anywhere with a stranger. If they’re ever uncomfortable, they should know to call a parent or maybe have a secret code they could text to ask for help. Punishment for breaking curfew should be immediate and fit the broken rule, advises Chenequa Moulds, Parent Education Coordinator for the Healthy Families Partnership in Hampton. “If the teen is out late with the car, for example, take the car keys for two days,” Moulds says. “Not, ‘you were out late with the car, so you have extra chores to do this week.’ Neither has anything to do with each other.” Spelling out possible punishments in advance also can help enforce the rules, Borba says. Penalties could come in increments: an hour earlier for curfew for a first offense, for example, followed by a full weekend’s

grounding or lost car privileges. “The more specific, the better,” she says. “The kid needs to know you’re very serious about it - and that the consequences could always change depending on the circumstances surrounding a broken rule.” Inevitably, kids will protest that their parents’ rules are stricter than another friend’s. “The parent should just remind their teen that they are responsible for him or her, and this is the rules of their household,” Moulds says. Of course, kids can always save face by blaming their unfair life on their parents. “Give them things they can say,” Borba says. “Like, ‘if I don’t get home now, or if I take this drink at this party, I’m going to lose my car for the next three years.’” They may roll their eyes, sure, but they’re more likely to get home safely.

Making the move easier

early elementary

Once the decision to move has been made, find uninterrupted time to talk with your children. Keep in mind age and developmental level. Older children need more time to adjust to a move than younger ones. Be positive, answer questions and promote upbeat conversation in the days to come.

Keep an open line of communication. Remind your children it is okay to ask questions. Acknowledge their concerns. Be patient with preschoolers who may have repeated questions. Share regrets about leaving but tell them what they have to look forward to. Be encouraging and empathetic. If communication time is limited due to schedules, make a â&#x20AC;&#x153;question jarâ&#x20AC;? so children may write down concerns to be answered at a designated time. Maintain a good attitude toward the move. Parents model attitudes and behaviors that children pick up on. Model how to handle the stress of the move. Display confidence. Keep a positive outlook. Present a united front with your spouse. Encourage children who are opposed to the move. Realize opposition may come from older children who do not want to leave familiar friends and activities. Listen and try to figure out what is troubling your child. See if there are alternative optionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;can the move be postponed until the end of the school year? Watch for signs of stress in your children. Signs could include loss of sleep, loss of appetite, separation anxiety, withdrawal from family and/or friends, selfinflicted injury, hostility, etc. Be observant. Talk with your children and teach stress management techniques. Talk with a professional if necessary. Make a trip to the new location. Prior to the move, take your children to see the house and other places of interest. Drive and walk around the community. Talk with neighbors. Visit the new school. If you cannot visit prior to the move, look online for information about the community and activities. Get a newspaper. Ask the realtor to videotape the home, look for online virtual walk throughs of your home. Remember children will feel more secure with concrete images and information. Take your childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead on â&#x20AC;&#x153;spring cleaning.â&#x20AC;? Ask how they feel about getting rid of old toys and clothes prior to the move. Recognize that some things may have significant value to them. If your children are in doubt, wait until after the move. Or make a deal with them: for every bag of toys/clothes given away, they get to purchase a bag full of new things. Let them participate in the move if they want to. This gives children ownership and lets them have some control. Allow them to make a few small decisions, help with spring cleaning, make plans to decorate their new rooms, pack boxes, etc. Ways to say goodbye. Take pictures of old friends and familiar places. Create a photo album or collection of things. Make a videotape. Have a â&#x20AC;&#x153;goodbyeâ&#x20AC;? party with friends. Buy a t-shirt and ask your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friends to sign it. Buy something from a favorite store you frequent (a bakery, for example) to take with you as you move. Keep in touch. Make phone calls, write letters and correspond over the Internet. Schedule play dates. Visit old friends and invite them to visit you. Moving in. Make setting up childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rooms a priority. It gives them a sense of home, settlement and security. Maintain regular routines as much as possible. Get involved in activities as soon as you can. Work through homesickness. Listen, support and encourage your children. Acknowledge sadness but remind them it will get better. Share your own sad feelings but end on positive note about the good things at your new home and community.

Experience the Montessori Difference

Now Enrolling For 2012-2013 Montessori is a scientific method of education utilizing hands on materials to teach small groups and individual students.
