A teenage curfew in something which parents put on their kids to restrict them from certain privileges, such as telling them to come at a certain time home, or to give them a sleeping time.

Teens need at least 8 hours of sleep, so it doesn't matter what time you give them a bed time curfew, as long as they have the amount of sleep.

Coming home at a certain time also depends on the area you live in. If it's a rough neighbourhood, the curfew should be earlier, and if it's a closed safe place, it could last later, or depending on what time you have dinner you can set a curfew.

Added: None of the above responses address the the fact that some municipalities (in the US) have enacted curfew LAWS which restrict persons of a certain age from either being out in public or from being in certain areas after a certain time of night. They usually draw complaints and occasionally court action from certain "civil rights" groups and are occasionally overturned, but many are drawn well enough and withstand court challenges.

A curfew is a time-based order. The time given is when something must be accomplished like the time to return somewhere. This order must be adhered to or there will be ramifications.

How did Ayotalloh Khomeini gain power?

The Ayatollah had a long period of dissidence with the Shah of Iran. He objected to what he believed was the Shahâ??s departure from Islamic law and his acceptance of western standards that would, he believed, result in an influx and eventual takeover by BaHa'i culture. Their relationship deteriorated to the point of the Ayatollah being exiled to Paris. Efforts to discredit Khomeini, as well as other student grievances, brought about the revolution of 1978. The Ayatollah returned to Tehran and engaged in resistance efforts, such as encouraging all to violate a military mandated curfew After the military withdrew, an Islamic government was approved by widespread demand and Khomeini became the Supreme Leader in 1979.
