Experienced Kentucky injury attorneys know that parents worry about their kids, especially during events like prom night – when teens want to be off having fun with their friends, not being supervised by concerned adults.  How do you strike the balance between giving your teens the independence they crave on prom night and the safety they need to have a truly fun time?  Consider the following tips:

Before Prom

  • Set the “ground rules.”  These should include looking over the school’s prom rules with your teen, stressing that your teen is not to drink alcohol, and setting a curfew.
  • Know the plan.  Talk with your teen about where he or she plans to go, who he or she will be with, and how he or she plans to get around – both during prom itself and during any pre- or post-prom parties. If other parents are hosting parties, talk to them as well.
