no, because teens sneak out.

It may be true that teenagers are capable of escaping from curfew, but that is not because of the curfew. In fact, I believe that a curfew can set boundaries, and that it is not the curfew which causes the issue of ignoring it, but the lack of commitment to the upkeep of the curfew which relies upon trust, something that should already be built up.

Some scientists think that the reason sleep evolved was because it keeps humans out of trouble at night. If they wandered around at night, they'd tend to be eaten by large animals.

Reasons for voting decision: FAIL DEBATE, as both sides dropped out... (checking the voting period debates, from Least To Most votes. By giving this one, it won't be prioritized in the system anymore.)
