  Tips for Parents: Have a Safe and Legal Party  
  Parents can have the best intentions when they allow their teen to have a party in their home, but permitting underage drinking is a BIG mistake. Teen drinking is illegal and unsafe. Allowing teens to drink in your home can result in sti penalties, including up to 30 days in jail and/or a $1000 ne. In addition, parents can be sued if they allow drinking and a teen is injured in any way (www.socialhostlaw.wordpress.com).  
 
     
  Establish rm rules that alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs are not allowed!  
  Planning the Party  
 
Ask your teen who is attending the party.
Limit the number of attendees by making the event invitation-only.
 
  When using social networking sites, e.g. Facebook, to create invitations, be sure to make the party "private" so only invitees can see the details of the party.
Put your phone number on the invitation and
welcome calls from parents.
 
Provide plenty of snacks and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as activities, such as dancing and games, to keep teens busy.  
 
 
   
 
  At the Party  
 
Define a set area for the party, have enough chaperones to provide supervision, and monitor the party frequently.
 
Lock up alcohol and medications to avoid access.
Restrict entry to the party. Have those attending enter through one door.
 
Let attendees know that if they leave the party, they can't come back.
 
Don't allow water bottles or other outside beverages so that alcohol can't be brought into the party.
 
Keep backpacks and coats in a separate area to prevent teens from bringing in alcohol or other drugs.
 
Be prepared to contact parents if an attendee appears to be under the influence or brings alcohol or other drugs to the party.
