When I was in high school, I didn't have a curfew - I had to have a PLAN. I was allowed to experience life, I was allowed to have fun, I was allowed to take risks ...but my parents had to know my plan.
As youth ministers they had heard the same song too many times following a life altering bad decision:
"What were you thinking?"
Major consequences from not thinking. To combat this, I HAD to have a plan. I had to think in advance about what I would be doing, the choices I would be making, and the risks I would be taking. As long as i stuck to the plan, I was OK. When my friends tempted me to stray from the plan - it was easy for me to resist because I LOVED the freedom I had to make any plan I wanted. I wasn't willing to trade the momentary satisfaction of "a little fun" for the lifestyle I had created. I loved my plan - and I took pride in my plan. My parents fostered in me a pride in my process, the mindset to simply do what the plan says to do.
It probably saved my life in high school ...and still shapes my life on a daily basis. Thanks mom and dad.
