Is Your Teen Sneaking Out Of the House?
You may have caught them doing this, or possibly they are doing this without your knowing it. Teens are crafty and bold. We’re sure you have experienced their sneakiness at one time or another.
Your teen may be trying to impress their friends by sneaking out. Showing off their newly earned freedom can make teens feel larger than life. The reality is that being out at night is an invitation for trouble. Rarely do positive things happen while a teen is out in the middle of the night without guidance. Usually under the cover of night most teens are doing all the things they know they should not be.
Discuss the risks of being out in the night with your teenager. Explain the possible outcomes, such as run-ins with the law and even criminals. Keep the message about safety and not control. Teens think that parents are trying to manage their lives when in reality parents are just trying to keep their kids out of danger.
If possible, keep your teen’s smart phone and other electronics in your room at night to prevent them from being in contact with friends in the middle of the night. By placing one of our GPS devices on your teen’s vehicle you can be alerted if they begin driving at night. We offer ignition alerts, meaning you will get a text message sent to you if they start the car. Parents can keep an eye on the whereabouts of their teens anytime, anywhere.
