You may need to sit down and discuss the boundaries with your children and modify them if there is a troublesome boundary. Don't keep yelling about the problem, work together to find a solution that you both can agree on. Perhaps on weekends an 11 p.m. curfew is more appropriate than a 10 p.m. curfew. However if your child has a midnight curfew and keeps wanting to push it to 1 or 2 a.m., then you are asking for trouble if you compromise. There may be exceptions, but these should be rare. Remember you are the parent and consequently you should have more wisdom and maturity.
