Towson Town Center has a new curfew in place just for the holiday season that limits when young people under 18 can be inside of the mall without an adult.

Going to the mall with your friends is something so many of us can relate to. It's part of being a teenager, but Towson Town Center is doing what so other many malls have done: implemented a curfew.

The company that managed the mall now has parental guidance required, which means they require that those 17 and under be accompanied at all times by a parent or supervising adult. That supervising adult needs to be over the age of 21.

One adult may accompany up to four youths. All accompanied youths must remain with the supervising adult.

Most shoppers 11 News spoke with seemed to think it is a difficult problem to solve.

"If you're trying to shop and get in and out, and there are a bunch of kids, you know, fighting or carrying on, it makes it difficult to make your trip. (Your) shopping trip (will) go a little bit smoother if they're accompanied by an adult because they're not going to be out of control when they're in the mall. They're just going to be there for what they're there for," said Jaquetta Oram, a shopper.

The mall does have a code of conduct put into place. Officials said the rule is put into place so that shoppers can have an enjoyable experience. There is no indication how this will be enforced, but mall management said proof of age may be required for the youth or supervising adult. Those who lack proper identification may be asked to leave the property.

The curfew will be in place the week between Xmas and New Year's Day. Curfew begins at 1 p.m. The mall has a regular curfew on Fridays and Saturdays set for 5 p.m.
