Parents surveyed

AN online survey has found parents thought children should be allowed to make decisions on the clothes they wear at the age of 12 but should wait until they’re 17 before they can decide when to come home at night.

The Raising Children Network survey asked parents what they thought was an appropriate age for children to make decisions on particular issues.

Surveyed parents varied on when children should be allowed to choose their own food. They were more in agreement that children should wait until they are in their early teens before making their own decisions on media and technology use.

RCN launched its raising teens section yesterday.
