i guess i am going to be the odd one out here but i am thinking at that age they should be allowed to work it out themselves with their parents. and don't get me wrong i was a strict one too. there were a lot of things i didn't let them do and i was often the ONLY parent calling and checking up on things when they went to someone else's house or parties and stuff - even chaperoning with other parents. but by 16 & 17 - it is on them. both are old enough to take the responsibility on themselves. AND finally i agree that as the step parent you should have stayed out of it and had your husband or the boys mother decide - their kid their rules. that's how it worked in our house too - hubby was the step parent and he deferred to me.
