Prom & Party Time: Parents’ Promise

It’s that time of year again in the United States, where
young people celebrate the ending of the school year
with proms and parties.

Unfortunately, many young adults die in car crashes during this time too caused by intoxication and distraction. What can parents do? You’ve heard about the programs in some schools where the make the students promise. Some places have adopted the parents’ promise as well.

When my children were at this age, we made these promises.
1. The student would promise not to drive drunk or get in a car with someone who would be driving drunk.
2. In exchange, no matter where they were or what time it was, all they had to do was call home and I would give them a ride home no questions asked.

3. When time had passed and everyone could talk about it in a non-emotional way, we would. But the most important goal was to get the student safely home.

The goal was always kept at the forefront: a young adult safely getting home.  It opened the opportunity for a conversation a few days later.

It worked well for my family. You may come up with a similar or specialized solution for yours.

May the prom and party season be a happy and safe time for your family!

Next week, back to more secrets.
