Curfew for Minors: Advantageous or Disadvantageous?

A CURFEW IS A LAW enacted by a local or state government that restricts certain people from being in public places at specified times of the day. Many cities and towns have a curfew law in place to prevent teenagers from being out at certain times, typically spanning the late hours of the night or school hours during the day. Any teenager caught out after curfew can face a fine or even jail time, depending upon the specific laws of the town.
 
Possible reasons to believe that curfew is advantageous:
·         Youth crime is a major and growing problem, often involving both drugs and violence. Imposing youth curfews can help to solve these problems, as they keep young people off the street, and therefore out of trouble, and prevent them from congregating in the hours of darkness.
·         The use of curfews on minors can help to protect vulnerable children for not all parents are responsible and inevitably their children suffer, both from crime and in accidents, and are likely to fall into bad habits. Society should ensure that such neglected children are returned home safely and that their parents are made to face up to their errands.

·         There is no good reason for children to be out unaccompanied late at night, so a curfew is not really a restriction upon their liberty. They would be better off at home doing schoolwork and interacting with the rest of their families.

·         Child curfews are a form of zero tolerance policing, showing that a community will not allow an atmosphere of lawlessness to develop. Child curfews can help to change a negative youth culture in which challenging the law is seen as desirable and gang membership an aspiration.
 
Possible reasons to believe that curfew is disadvantageous:
·         What if they have to stay out late for a school related activity?
·         What if they have part-time jobs, for example being jeepney conductors? Many jobs requires staying until night to earn money for their living.
·         It is unethical to criminalize their simple presence in a public space.
·         Once charged even for flimsy reasons, they will have criminal record which might bring harms to their opportunities in employment and so increases the social deprivation and desperation which breed crime.

that's right .. curfew for teenagers can prevent them to use drugs , liquors etc

Advantage, to concentrate all the minors in their study. advantage because to help the minors to get away to the bad influence in their life and to control them Advantage,they can do their responsibilities as a student and they can balance their time well

we are teens and having a curfew on us is good cause that law is for us. It helps us to have time management in our self like for example doing some group projects or presentations we know that we have curfew so we should do it or finish it as soon as possible if there's a vacant time while were on school we should do it so that our time is not wasted. Through doing that we cannot be in hurry to finish our projects or presentation in other houses of our groupmates and going home late and be arrested by some bceo or police. Curfew also help teens to be not stay too long outside doing nothing and just mingle with their barkada's, boyfriends and other peoples. Through curfew law some youth crime can be prevented and this is an important things for the youth because as Rizal said "Kabataan ang pag-asa ng Bayan" so our government should also be focus on the youth. There are some youth which is pasaway or hard-headed and through that curfew law they can be discipline. There's nothing for the youth or teens to not accept or obey the curfew law because it is only for their own good.

Advantage - the curfew helps the minors from untoward incident like gambling,drinking,loitering,drugs and others. It helps the minors to study their lesson, to help their parent do the household chores and also for their safety

Curfew for minors is a big advantage because it can avoid the youth from doing indecent things like snatching, gambling, rape, taking prohibited drugs, etc. . It will also teach the young people how to be responsible in every actions that they will do.

Curfew is an advantage most especially on some youth because they can avoid accidents and those people who will influence them to do cruel things such as taking drugs, smoking, gang rape, stealing, etc. It also an advantage because they can bond with their families every meal time and do their responsibilties, for example doing their assignments, reviewing, etc.

It is wonderful idea for teens to have curfews because it teaches them to be responsible and also considerate of other people around them. Teens may not like the idea of a curfew in the beginning and they may fight with parents about it. Parents need to remember that kids will eventually thank you for the curfew when they become a young adult cause then they will finally understand why they had a curfew. . Don't feel like bad parents despite how much the teens yell at you during the teen years. Teens just don't understand what parents do or say the things they do when they are young. Teens often feel like that parents take away their freedom. Most teens don't understand that teens don't need much freedom since they are irresponsile and not an adult yet. Most teens get into trouble if they have too much freedom to do anything they want to do. Teens shouldn't be treated like adults when they aren't a very responsible person. In a way curfew does help prepares them for the future by helping them to be prepared to be able to handle being a responsible young adult once when they reach that age.

Advatage because it cab help other people to be responsible of what can happen if we don't have a curfew beause on how we experiencing different crime outside but if we have curfew for the minors, we can discipline them.

to prevent children to evening strolling on the runway because they can perish or maybe Invite them to intimate vices

Having a Curfew for minor is ADVANTAGEOUS Having a curfew is it good for us. And to also avoid the minor age having trouble, drinking alcohol, and early pregnancy. must also cooperate with parents scold their children to perish in them. must also punish who violate Curfew.

It is advantageous for the minor implementing curfew because it can help minors to make their normal routine as they go home early, through these they can study their home works and it will also serve as a good practice to be a well discipline person to their parents. Curfew also avoid getting trouble of the minors because many crimes are happening at night. Curfew for the minors help them to complete their rest and sleep every night instead of being out and doing nonsense activity all night long.

THE ADVANTAGES they can concentrate their studies . and be away from bad influence....

advantages; Having curfew in minors is ok because if there no curfew lots of minors will become alcohol addicts and some of theme got sick for getting sleep not in time.And some student got lower grades in school for being late everyday and lastly if there is an accident that a minors belong their parents doesn't know it because they doesn't know what their child does and they doesn't where it is.

For me curfew for minors is advantage for it will minimize or even stop the growing numbers of youth crime now a days.

sa inyong palagay ,payag ba kayo magkaroon ng curfew ?bakit ?

Sabi sa artikulo, ang pagkakaroon daw ng curfew para sa mga katulad nating menor de edad ay higit daw na makakatulong upang maiwasan ang pagkakasangkot natin sa droga at krimen, para saiyo sang-ayon ka ba sa pagpapatupad ng curfew?

Kailangan ba talagang magkaroon ng curfew para sa mga menor de edad ??.

. . Curfew for minors is an advantage and prudent especially for those youth who always stayed outside doing bad things and also to avoid young people from crimes etc.

Are You willing that your local Government Enact a Law about "Curfew for Minors".?!do Think its Necessary.??

curfew maybe advantage or disadvantage to teenagers, but law is done only for the purpose of protecting people. Question: what do you think about the curfew advantage or disadvantage why?

Curfew for minors have many advantages than disadvantages, they will be protected from crimes and accidents and spend their times to their families in the rest of the night :) For you, Curfew for minors:advantage or disadvantage?

curfew is advantage because it will prevent many crimes involving teenagers.

its advantage it protects us teenagers to be harm by other people and it also helps us to be more organize person and have more time to family and have good relationship rather than to be with other people whom you dont know that is bad influence for you.

advantage yung curfew kasi maiiwasan yung mga kaguluhan sa kagabi para hindi na rin makawala yung mga nag-aadik, tsaka yung mag magnanakaw para narin walang mga nagbubugbugan tsaka yung mga prosti pag gabi.

advantage it will lessen the crime rate involving minors or teenagers, and teenagers will be scared of the penalties that is bound if you break the curfew.

Curfew for minors have many advantages, the minors will be protected from crimes and accidents and they have enough time to have a bonding to their families and love ones.

curfew has an advantage because curfew focuses on peace and safety not only for the youths but also for all the members of a society.

DISADVANTAGE! kase lalo na malayo yung bahay ko ee palagi kung uwi ang gabi na. kaya hindi maiiwasan na maabutan ako ng curfew minsan.

advantage po, Kasi less trouble. and mamanage natin yung time natin. Mas wise yun para satin Minors.

advantage: since there is a higher rate of crimes committed by minors due to the fact that they cannot be imprisoned, then the curfew may help lessen crimes at night that may possibly be committed by the minor. Also, there will be lesser crimes committed towards minors during the time of the curfew where rape and other crimes are of higher risk compared to daytime.

Advantage Sa panahon natin ngayon na di sigurado ang ating sariling siguridad dahil sa kawalan ng tamang bilang ng mga pulis na siyang dapat na nagbabantay sa bawat tao malaki ang magagawa ng curfew bilang solusyon sa problema ng siguridad sa bansa, at sa lalong pagtaas ng kremen na kinasasangkutan ng mga minor de edad may batas na ginawa ang mga lungsod para rito. Subalit sa kasawiang palad ay wala itong ngipin para tuluyang ipatupad madalas sa mga alanganing oras o lugar nangyayari ang kremin kaya mas makakabuti kung tuluyan nang ipatutupad sa buong kapuluan bilang prebensyon sa lalong lumalaking bilang ng mga kabataan na nasasangkot sa kremen. MAGIGING EPEKTIBO ANG BATAS KUNG TAMA ANG PAGPAPATUPAD NITO.

It must be implemented to prevent crimes that involves minor and at the same time for the safety of each and everyone.

It is advantage to implement a law regarding of curfew for minors because it can help to resolve some juvenile issues and crimes.

Di po agree. kasi minsan kapag hinihigpitan lalong kumakawala yung mga teenagers eh, maganda nga siya pero paano naman kung minsan may activity na late ang uwian? then subject sila for curfew.

For me it is an advantage, especially for the children. It will lessen the crime involving minors. It will also help the parents by monitoring their children and to also discipline teenagers.

I agree with Alvarez' comment. it is an advantage for the children. makakaiwas na sila sa krimen during midnight. crime becomes abundant most commonly when it is late. so it will keep the children from harm.

disagree ako sa comment. Kasi it is a matter also of trust. If you trust your child, then curfew is not needed. Giving them no curfew is like giving them your trust. so all in all, Disadvantageuos.

Para sakin, bilang isang bata tama lang ding ipatupad ang curfew for minors sapagkat lumolobo na rin ang bilang ng mga kapwa ko minor de edad, na nasasangkot sa gulo o di kaya naman ay napagsasamantalahan dahil na rin sa palagiang pagtigil ng mga kabataan sa labas ng kanilang bahay hanggang hating gabi. Karamihan rin kasi sa mga mapagsamantala ay nagsasagawa ng kanilang mga masasamang gawain kung dis oras na ng gabi kung saan wala nang gaanong tao at di na rin mahigpit ang siguridad. Kaya't kung itoy maipapatupad maaring mabawasan ang bilang ng kabataang na napapahamak sa oras ng gabi. Sana lamang ay magampanan nga ng mga pulisya ng tama ang kanilang tungkuling gagampanan sa curfew for minors upang maging maayos ang pagpapatupad nito.

Para sakin, Bilang isang bata tama lang na ipatupad ang curfew for minors sapagkat patuloy ang paglobo ng bilang ng mga minor de edad na nasasangkot sa gulo at ang iba nama'y napagsasamantalahan dahil na rin sa palagiang pagtigil ng mga kabataan sa labas ng kanilang bahay hanggang hating gabi. Karamihan rin kasi sa mga mapagsamantala ay nagsasagawa ng kanilang masasamang gawain tuwing dis oras na ng gabi kung saan hindi na gaanong mahigpit ang siguridad dahil sa kawalang ng mga pulis. Kaya't kung itoy maipapatupad malaki ang maiaambag nito sa pag bawas ng bilang ng mga batang napapahamak sa oras ng gabi. Sana lamang ay magampanan ng mga pulisya ng tama ang kanilang mga gampanin kung maipapatupad ang curfew for minors upang maging positibo ang magiging kahihinatnan nito.

Para sa akin bilang mag aaral at bilang isang bata nararapat lang na ipatupad ang Curfew For Minors dahil dito maiiwasan natin na masangkot ang mga minor de edad sa mga kaguluhan o anu mang aksidenteng maaaring mangyari tuwing hating gabi. Ako ay sumasang ayon na ito ay maipatupad dahil Ito ay makatutulong sa atin sa maraming bagay gaya nga ng sabi ko mas bababa o mas maiiwasan natin ang kaguluhan at aksidente.Ang Pulis ay hindi naman perpekto para Magawa ng tama ang lahat ng bagay, ang importante lang ay gawin nila ang kanilang gampanin ng maayos .
