Prom Season

Date Posted: May 4th, 2018

Prom season is upon us bringing a much anticipated night of fun for high school Juniors and Seniors and night full of happiness, photos’s, worry and anxiety for parents!  As you prepare to send your 11th grader off on their first big night on the town or 12th grader off on their last big hurrah of their high school career please keep in mind these simple tips to keep them safe and to help them make the night full of nothing but happy memories!

1.  Talk openly and honestly with your child about the dangers of intoxicated driving. Be brutally honest if you have to.  Make sure that your child knows that you would much rather get a call at 1 a.m to come pick them up at a party verses a call from the police department or heaven forbid, worse.

2.  Encourage your child to limit the amount of people they ride or drive with.  The more passengers in a vehicle the more distractions for the driver.   Try to arrange for your child to pool together funds to rent a limo for the night!  It is well worth the peace of mind!

3.  Remind your child that you trust them while at the same time encouraging them to take a minute out of their evening to text you photos of them and their friends all dressed up.  This will give you an opportunity to check out the photos and the surroundings they are in.

4.  Have a back up plan.  Make sure your son or daughter has a plan if things do not work out with their date or if they just don’t feel safe in the situation they are in.  A back up plan will ensure that they will not feel “stuck” with their date or friends placing them in an unsafe situation.

5.  Be sure their cell phone is completely charged.

We hope that your teen has a wonderful prom and makes tons of amazing memories AND that YOU get a nice peaceful sleep the night AFTER prom!
