Assignment 2: Communication within Families


Three 17 year old high school students are planning on going  to an 8pm movie together on a Friday night.

Sally has no curfew, so she didn’t think going to the  movies  would be a problem. Sally asked her mother on Tuesday if she  could go and her  mother said “yes.” When Friday arrived, her mother  told Sally that she couldn’t  go to the movies anymore, it was too late  for her to go out, and she needed to  stay home. Her mother then left to  go to the bar, and Sally was left to feed  and care for her younger  brother.

Mary asked her father if she could go to the movies. He   responded that as her curfew was 9pm she was not allowed to go to the  movies.  Mary did not want to question her father’s decision, so she  kept quiet, even  though it was the weekend, and she had no  responsibilities on Saturday morning.  Mary asked her mother if she  would try to talk to her father to convince him to  lift the curfew for  one night, but her mother refused to do so.

Sam asked his parents if he could go to the movies. His   parents stated that while normally his curfew was 9pm, it was a weekend  night  and he had no plans early in the morning on Saturday. Sam’s  parents decided  that as long as his homework and chores were finished,  he could have an  extension on his curfew for the evening, and could go  to the movies. On Friday  afternoon, Sam completed his homework and  chores, and left to see the movie,  with the promise to call his parents  if the movie got out later than 10pm.
