Prom Safety 101: 4 Tips for Parents

Prom is almost here, and you’ll want to do everything you can to help your teen get ready for the big event.

For many teens, prom represents a once-in-a-lifetime celebration.

However, it also is important for your teen to celebrate safely, and this is an area where you’ll be able to provide assistance.

When it comes to prom, there are many ways you can help your teen enjoy a safe, fun-filled experience, including:

Educate your teen about prom night dangers.

You recognize that your teen is responsible; unfortunately, the same may not be true about his  friends. But with the right prom safety tutorials, you’ll be able to teach your teen about the dangers he may encounter over the course of prom night.

Also, be prepared to respond to any of your teen’s pre-prom questions. And if there are ever queries you’re uncertain about, don’t be afraid to reach out to your fellow parents, guidance counselors and others who may be able to lend a helping hand.

Learn about your teen’s post-prom plans.

After the final dance at your teen’s prom concludes, what happens next?

Find out if your child is going to attend any post-prom celebrations, and if so, get information about these parties.

Post-prom celebrations are common, but that does not mean you should take these parties for granted, particularly when it comes to your teen’s safety.

Ask your child for the party address and contact information for adults or chaperones in attendance – that way, you’ll know where the party is taking place and who to contact if an emergency arises.

Establish a curfew

Establishing a curfew is a must for prom night. A curfew serves as a verbal agreement between you and your son or daughter and allows you to lay out ground rules for the celebration as well.

A curfew, however, should not limit your teen’s ability to celebrate prom with his or her friends.

For example, if your child already has a curfew, you may want to consider extending it a few hours for prom night. By doing so, you’ll be able to show your child that you trust him or her with additional responsibility.

Use a chauffeured car service.

Prom night represents a memorable celebration, so why not provide your teen with unbelievable ground transportation for the evening?

With a chauffeured car service, your teen won’t have to worry about driving on prom night. Instead, he or she can travel in a superb vehicle with his or her friends and simply focus on enjoying the evening’s festivities.
