Original post made on Mar 8, 2019

I wish all parents of teens were required to attend this type of event also. Maybe then those parents that choose to allow their teens to drink and also host drinking teens at their homes might think twice about their decisions. I had numerous parents of my daughters' friends tell me that there would be no drinking or drug use when my daughter was at their home. They LIED!!! My daughter (now a 30 yr. old adult) now understands why we chose to be PARENTS when she was a teen and now we can be FRIENDS!

Be a responsible parent and set a good example for your children.

Mad Mom. So I agree with you...For sure...However, and I am not saying you are, but Parent shaming can go too far. What I mean is that so many parents, so many raise their children right...All the right lessons, all the important tools given their children..But children/young adults can turn "left" so often in life, after the best of parenting....I know. :(
