In general, public establishments to which minors have no entry make this prohibition clearly visible at the entrance, indicating the age limit as well. Patronizing night clubs and bars is prohibited for children under the age of 16. On the weekends especially, young people frequent movie theaters, pubs, pizzerias and theaters in the early evening hours (5 PM- 8 PM) or later evening (9 PM- 11 PM).
It is assumed that the reference is to outdoor public places, such as parks, which are frequented by shady dealers, prostitutes, etc. The term "morally harmful" leaves a lot of room for interpretation, and allows for a variety of definitions. Indeed, the list of "places" which are viewed as morally harmful to youth is long. At the same time, however, it would be inadequate to limit this list to places where prostitution, theft and drug dealing are practiced and similar environments, when in fact many other circumstances should also be included, such as presence in the immediate vicinity of a railway line or road, visits to websites and being in the company of "false" friends.
Common sense dictates that the principle of "heeding dangers" applies, i.e. that adults should alert the minors under their responsibility, based on their individual type of authority (as parents, educators, hosts, travel guides, coaches, etc.), when they believe they have identified factors in the situation which could pose a risk or cause harm to the minor's health, physical integrity or education or which could promote conduct inconsistent with the values and cultural background of the minor's family. This criterion is also connected to the adult's assessment as to the degree of independence assigned to the child or adolescent. In general, the tendency is to allow more freedom of movement and to rely more on the minor's judgment as the minor increases in age.
