Abstract

Throughout the ages, parents have fretted about how much control they should be exercising over the whereabouts of their teenage children. This issue has become particularly relevant in contemporary Britain, against the backdrop of the riots of 2011, with ‘poor parenting’ being blamed in some quarters for the disturbances, and with pronouncements by Parliament and regional police forces that parents should make sure they ‘know where their children are’ at night.
