Would you let your high school freshman have a co-ed Halloween party?


Would you let your high school freshman daughter have a co-ed Halloween party? Tell me the parameters. She originally wanted it in our basement. But I could not fit 30 kids. So we have opted for the garage, covering the walls with black plastic, adding some orange lights, refreshments, a portable fire-pit and corn hole, 15 chairs. My biggest concern is having too many kids show up. I told her we would be monitoring it. Does anyone have any ideas how to control it while keeping it interesting? I told my daughter I did not want a flash-mob-texted party.

    Good ideas...but then kids will think we are creepy parents. It is a balance. I appreciate your thoughts.

    I laid out ground rules, but I better type them up and have her sign-off and show it to her friends. Yes, we have a 3 car garage. it helps since it is in the 50's at night.

    I love the invite only Idea. I will have to have a code: for them to enter. If they do not know the party code they can't come in. Like a promo code for the day. Thanks for the your invite only idea.
