You're not too strict, pg. You may be on the "stricter" end of the scale (as am I), but you are certainly not off the scale.
If there are structured activities, I'm OK with a later curfew, but young teens just aimlessly roaming the ship after 11 pm is recipe for trouble, if you ask me.
There were not a lot of teens onboard that were my son's age (they were mostly older), so he didn't really *want* to be out late with friends. We are both night owls and so stayed out pretty late, but together.
I like the sticky note system, Shelia. We used it with our room steward, but I think might try it for our family on our next cruise!
