Hey Johnny's House, I heard you talking about the Prom on your show the other day. You guys are roll models in the community and I can't believe that you encourage kids to go. The Prom is so bad for teens today. What the Prom does is give kids a reason to get dressed up, drink and have sex. If you think you're kids aren't doing this, you're fooling yourself. I'll never give my children permission to go to this horrible event. Parents are spending hundred of dollars to let their kids go to an event where liquor, sex and even drugs are the main reason to go. No one goes to the Prom to dance. Are parents so out of touch that they really think their sons or daughters are just eating, dancing, taking pictures and then going home? Do you really think this is going on. Let me paint the picture for you. Your kids are probably going with a group of kids that you know so you think everything is OK. After the Prom, you think they're going to an after party or a hotel party and you know all the kids and it shouldn't be a problem. As soon as your kids leave your presence is when the drinking and drugs start. They've already made the plan to have sex and get home in enough time for you not to worry but you should worry.
If you have no problem with your children having a wild night of drinking and sex then let them go. If you do have a problem then maybe you should volunteer and a chaperone so you know exactly what your kids are doing. You are still a parent.
