Boys and no parent supervision

Recommended Posts

At what age would you allow you your son to start hanging out with friends with no parent supervision?

What do you mean by no supervision? Like you’re not at home and they are? They’re out somewhere without you? Regardless my answer would be the same for my son and daughters, I wouldn’t differentiate based on sex. But it would all very much depend on what the other child’s parents agreed to so it would depend on the specific group.

12? 14? It depends on the situation. Two 12 year olds at one of their homes for a few hours wouldn't bother me. Basically the more kids the more trouble, so a large group of teenagers I'd like some parental supervision.

Yeah, no difference for boys or girls. I’m more comfortable with than being at home than out somewhere. DS has occasionally had friends over after school when we weren’t there - probably from year 5?

eta Thought I’d mention the other parents knew we weren’t there - our school ‘culture’ can be a bit ‘free range’ and quite a few kids come and go by themselves at a relatively young age.

Shops, the movies etc about 12, but I'd probably drop them off and pick them up at an agreed time.

With that clarification I’d say 12-14, depending on the kids involved.

Mine started occasional free-range riding their bikes around the neighbourhood with friends from about 11 maybe. Shops/movies in year 7, so 12, but I did say they didn’t need to go to the shopping centre every weekend, and their friends’ parents were happy to go along with that. DS1 is about to turn 15, and I don’t have any concerns with him now. DS2 is 13 and my feelings are very dependent on who he is with.

ETA Large groups are out.  They don’t move in packs.

Basically in year 7, but I much prefer to be home if the kids are hanging around my home. Especially one, who seemed a bit “ precocious“  regarding girlfriends, compared to my son.
