Prom Safety

  • Who will be doing the driving? Will they drive themselves or rent a limo?

  • If driving themselves, keep a list of names and phone numbers of each teen rider, along with names and addresses of all the parents. Insist that the car radio be kept at a low volume, limit the number of teen passengers to minimize distractions for the driver, and require each teen to buckle up his or her seatbelt.

  • Get a list of who your teen will be accompanying, with addresses and phone numbers for the prom location as well as any after-parties your teen plans to attend.

  • If your teen will be renting a limo, be sure to check the limo company's driving record, and don't be afraid to ask the company to provide it to you.

  • Does your teen know how to contact you throughout the evening? Consider arranging specific check-in times, and make sure you can contact your teen throughout the entire night.

  • Communicate with your teen specifically about how he or she would handle difficult situations such as being offered a ride by an intoxicated driver, being offered alcohol or drugs. Be sure to provide parental instruction on how best to deal with problems that may arise.

  • Insist that there are to be no changes to the schedule and make that a firm rule with no exceptions allowed.

  • Find out who will be supervising the prom and after-parties. Be sure to speak directly with any parents supervising after-parties your teen wishes to attend, since some parents may allow underage drinking

  • Consider volunteering to assist in supervising the prom or after-parties your teen will attend, which will help ensure there are enough responsible adults watching over the party-goers.

  • Have very specific and detailed conversations with your teen about alcohol consumption, driving under the influence, drug use, as peer pressure often leads teens to use poor judgment before, during, and after prom.

  • Make sure your teen has phone numbers to trustworthy cab companies programmed into his or her cell phone, and plenty of money to cover the cost of a cab ride, if deemed necessary for any reason.

  • Will someone in the home wait up until the teen arrives back home safely? If so, who?
