This article focuses on the issue of banning the entry of teenagers in shopping malls. A growing number of the United States shopping malls are putting curfews on unaccompanied mall rats. That's why a growing number of malls nationwide are chasing out under-18 teens by late afternoon seven days a week or just on Fridays and Saturdays unless they're with someone 21 or over. Unfortunately, malls have become a kind of day care for teens, where young people go to hang out on weekends and after school.
