CURFEW in the CITY: It sounds ALARMING!?!

It has been days that I had seen this advisory in my neighbourhood. The local officials are trying to implement this curfew to younger generation aged 18 and below. Personally, I think it is effective for the sake of being safe. I am not sure with the others. When I was at this age, my biological parents strictly imposed to have a curfew and should go home not later than 6 PM. If it is not possible, my siblings and I need to call them if going to be late.

Well no curfew for me back then since I seldom go out late at nights back then. Anyway with the prevalence of crimes at night I think it needs to be implemented so we can easily monitor criminals without endangering any minors loitering around at night.

I totally agree with you. I think my city is not that risky as compared to other big cities in our country. But then, it still needs to monitor the kiddies, especially those who are addicted to computer games.

@rsa101, Mindanao is on curfew adults at 10 minor before 9. This is so because some schools like in the school where I am teaching, classes end at 9 . Some students rent in a condo fronting the university, others in dorm at the back of the campus, others ask for an excuse. I had students who live outside the city, so I gave a short quiz every meeting before the class starts and announced activities for the next meeting so those who commute far from the city will be allowed to go home at 8:25. The class starts 6 in the evening. Once a week meeting.

@Shavkat Yes I think minors should not be allowed to be outside at those times when they should be at home resting or either studying for school already.

My sons are way to old for a curfew but when I was growing up I definitely had a curfew. As my sons were growing up they had a curfew also and they knew not to be out past it unless they called and had a real good reason why they couldn't make it home on time.

I do think young ones need to be responsible to have this curfew in the house. For me, there is no feeling of sentiment about it. Of course, I have rebellious things at that time. But I need to follow the rules. Now, I realized that there is really a reason why parents do this.

We have always had a curfew here. anyone under 16 the curfew is 10pm to 5am and 16-18 have midnight to 5am. It was never really told to us in schools or by our parents, we all just some how knew to not be out so late. Or if we were going to be out late, don't do anything stupid to get caught haha

The entire region of Mindanao, we are under curfew. Cagayan de Oro city is part of Region X in Mindanao, I have to be at home before 8 in the evening.

During my days, the local government never had this rule in the city. It is only the parents need to impose to their kiddies. I can relate to that. Some of my friends escape their houses to hang out. But they should never do stupid things and be caught off guard.

When I was a child my late parents did not have any curfew laws. However I did not go that much without their supervision.

@Deepizzaguy , parents also be at peace if see or know their children young and not already at home, if not home, they will be restless and many negative thinking strikes upon them.

I think most young ones are not always going outside as compared these days. I also asked permission of ever going out and be late. My parents wanted us to know that they do not want to be worried.

@sophie09 , it seems curfew helps people minimize crimes. We are safe if inside home at early evening. I am not happy with my teaching loads this time. I have two subjects that end at 7:30 in the evening. I do not like to be outside home before 7 in the evening. There is always heavy traffic in the city, so most probably, I will arrive home 8:45.

I think you need to abide it, right? What if you didn't follow it? It means you are grounded.

When I was a kid, I wanted to work while studying. But it is not allowed here. I think they are so responsible and tend to go home right away.

@Shavkat They have parents, I hope, telling them when to come home and, it's at 10 pm, not 9 pm. In big times, we don't have officials so, minors stick outside even longer. Some things can't be forced, I guess. It's surprising how officials there care for this thing; was it always like this?

Before when we're kids we never thought it's as a curfew. What we had in mind is that out-of-this world people are out during night time. They're roaming around to catch any children they see around and brung them to their world. So we better go home before night falls.
