Sooner or later, every teenager has a time when he wants to wander the streets of the city for days and nights, spend time with friends and just enjoy freedom.
But it turns out that every freedom before a certain age also has its limits.
In our country, much attention is paid to security issues, including the safety of children on the streets.
There are not so many prohibitions and restrictions, but if they are established, they are definitely necessary and important in the first place to protect ourselves and there is no need to treat them negatively.
The rules by which we live are often written at the very highest price of someone else's mistakes.
It is not in vain that the law has appeared and is in force in the norm according to which minors under the age of 16 can not be out of their homes without adult supervision from 23 to 6 hours.

The rules by which we live are often written at the very highest price of someone else's mistakes.
It is not in vain that the law has appeared and is in force in the norm according to which minors under the age of 16 can not be out of their homes without adult supervision from 23 to 6 hours.
Such standards apply not only in Belarus, but also in many countries of Europe and America.
First of all, this is aimed at protecting the rights of children, since on the street at this “forbidden” time, a teenager may become a victim of crime or delinquency, or fall into another situation unsafe for himself. Unreliable persons may involve him in the commission of crimes or offenses.
Due to the immaturity of the psyche, children are easily susceptible to the influence of others, and this often manifests itself in practice.
Responsibility for the child lies with his parents. In some cases, guardians and trustees.
Therefore, it is these people who must accompany children under 16 years of age outside the home during the “forbidden” time. If they cannot do this, then they must ensure that the child is accompanied by another adult. But this person does not just have to go out of the house with the child, he must be around during his entire stay outside the house.
Not without reason, all this is spelled out in the Law of the Republic of Belarus “On the Rights of the Child,” namely in the article that speaks of family responsibility for the child. ♦
Yes Yes. Family members have not only rights, but also obligations and even responsibility for their non-fulfillment.
If, nevertheless, the child ended up on the street after 23.00 and until 6.00 alone, then the parents will bear administrative responsibility for this.
According to part 1 of article 17.13 of the Code of the Republic of Belarus on Administrative Offenses (hereinafter - the Code of Administrative Offenses), the failure by parents or persons replacing them of the obligation to accompany a minor under the age of sixteen years or to ensure that he is accompanied by an adult in the period from twenty three to six hours outside the home is liable to a warning or a fine of up to two basic units.
And if such actions are repeated within one year after the imposition of an administrative penalty for the same violation, then a fine may be imposed on parents in the amount of two to five basic units (part 2 of article 17.13 of the Code of Administrative Offenses).
But what will happen to the child if the police find him outside the house from 23.00 to 6.00?
There is a whole procedure in such situations.
Upon detection, the child will be transferred to the parents or, on their instructions, to another adult.
Prior to this, the police officer will establish the last name, first name, middle name, day, month, year of birth and last name, first name, middle name, place of residence of the child and parents.
If suddenly the location of the parents is not established, or they will be in a place that does not allow the child to be transferred to them and they have not given instructions to transfer the child to another adult, he will be delivered to the social and educational center at the place of detection or place of residence.
When transmitting to parents, 3 copies of the act are drawn up, one of which is sent to the juvenile commission within three working days, which can then carry out preventive work with the child and even apply measures of influence for such behavior.
Dear Parents! Summer is coming soon, and this is the time when children do not always want to return home on time.
We hope that after reading this, you will find a lot of useful things for yourself and realize that leaving children unattended for walking is not safe for both the children and the parents who are responsible for them.
