As a teen, I want to say yes, but the adult in me says no. So lets combined them, and only let her go out in a group, or with a weapon, not like a gun, but maybe a knife or a club idk, just something to protect herself. (a knife was a horrible idea)
Depends on how long for, but at her age she's probably smoking cigarettes or cannabis (marijuana) .. My daughter did that and she was the last one you'd expect to do that.. This isn't a for sure thing but check her for anything before she leaves
No. Too many crazies in the world these days. Sometimes the neighborhoods you feel the most safe in can be the most dangerous. I'm not completely paranoid but one must err on the side of caution. So many bad things have happened to young people who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. You can never go back and undo some things but you can always be smart if you choose too.
You could go with her. I wouldn't send my 15 yo by herself though. If she is going with a female friend get her some mace or self defence classes and mace. and if you have high level of trust in her then with her boyfriend would be okay.
Depends on where you live. If other law-abiding citizens are afraid to be out at night, you should be afraid too. Herd instinct makes us collectively stupid, but you're still safer as an individual, if you stay with the herd.

No, it is never good no matter what neighbourhood. She should always have someone with her to keep her safe. She is female and statistics show it is females that get abducted, raped and murdered much more often than males.
Are you really going to let your 15 year old daughter go on walks at night? A phone wont help her....if someone kidnapped her or something she can just take out her phone, just saying...I think no inless she is with all these friends and give her a time she has to come home
It depends on where she is walking and if someone will be with her. But truly she is 15 that is a rebellious age. I think that she shouldnt go on late night walks,because she could get kidnapped or killed and that is something that you would have to live with. Bad terrible things could happen. I think that is a horrible thing to let your children do. YOu should put a stop to this wild act. Something could happen to your sweet little girl.
It does depend on where you live and how well she can take care of herself. Why does she have to walk at night? Does she go with friends? If she really wants to go, go with her. You could form a wonderful bond by taking walks together and having parent child talks and you won't have to worry about her.
Depends how late at night. I am a 15 year old girl as well. My mother does not let me walk alone at night. The only times I was allowed was when I was with my brother or my boyfriend, because there can be really nasty pervs out there.
Unfortunately, there are too many sickos out there who would take advantage. Girls between 11-15 are most often targeted, because they are old enough to be on their own, but not strong enough to defend themselves.
