It is that time of year. Your teenagers are going to prom, that high school right-of-passage for many. Perhaps you remember your prom night and are completely relaxed, or your prom night was off the rails and you are now in a state of panic, or somewhere in between. All parents want their children to have fun, stay safe and be sober. Hopefully, you have been having conversations with your teen about sex, drinking, and drugs throughout their high school years. It is much better to have an on-going conversation instead of a “Rule Dump” right before prom. Make sure you and your teen are aware of potential pitfalls so that they can avoid any legal troubles.
