Parents on Kids: Pierced Ears, Sure; But a Late Night Out – Not So Fast

Other areas where parents with grown-up children are significantly more likely to nix activities by kids under 18: seeing R-rated movies (by 12 points), having credit cards or cell phones (by 10 and 7 points, respectively), and hanging out at the mall or attending a party unsupervised (by 9 and 7 points, respectively).

Among parents with kids under 18, there are a few differences depending on the ages of their children. The biggest is that parents with kids younger than 6 are more apt to be OK with unsupervised parties. Give them time.
