Shopping malls in Madison, Wis. made headlines recently –and disappointed some local teens — when they imposed unusual curfews. According to the new rules, young people under the age of 18 are not allowed to enter the malls without a parent or guardian who is over 21 after 4 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
Mall managers justified the ban, saying groups of teens have been causing problems on weekend nights, and the ban is designed to prevent disruption. But some teens and parents disagree with the strict measure, claiming it interferes with a teenage tradition of hanging out with friends and is unnecessarily punishing well-behaved teens.
Mall curfews are in effect in over 100 shopping centers across the U.S. We want to know what you think — should malls have curfews for teens? Vote and tell us your opinion in the comments section below. We will feature the results of the poll and some of your comments on the show.
No because some teens don’t cause problems. they just go there to shop and have a good time:)
It’s not fair! Sorry teenagers!
It is so unfair for teens.
As long as they aren’t messing around or being jerks.
I think that they should give a curfews to teens at the mall, because kids/teen will stay out too long and they need rest and enough time to sleep for school and college.
I love that idea.
no cause we teens are k
