    Would you let your teenager get a prom house at the beach with friends? Why or why not?

    I live in an area where after prom, teenagers sleep over (co-ed) in a house that an adult rents out for them. I don't condone this and think it's a bad idea. Am I just old school or being cautious? What are your thoughts? Would you let your teenager rent a beach house after prom with their friends, or rent one for them? Why or why not?

    That'll never happen. Cause she always live under my rules under my roof under my watchful eyes....tongue   JK, I wouldn't care   but I would want her to be safe Is she 18? An adult woman who makes her own choices. I won't choose for her, when she's an adult

    The only way I would allow it is if several adults were there to supervise.  Period.

    No way! That kind of thing is for adults only. This is what is wrong with the world today, parents are too lax with their kids and just let them do anything. You are right on with your decision. I think this makes you a great parent.

    No - for a number of reasons.  First, I would want to believe my child would behave but others may not and destroy property or worse yet someone could end up in serious adult type situation they are not ready for.

    Secondly, it is huge liability if you rent the house and someone's child gets drunk or drugged or killed driving home. The adult renting the house may be held responsible.

    So you may be old school - but good for you, your instincts wound right on.

    Old school or new school, you are the parents!

    Are you trying to "fit in" at all costs? It's as old as humans are old, there will be sex in some way at this type of arrangement, like it or not.

    So... why would you allow this for YOUR children/teens? By allowing this, you CONDONE this - regardless of what you feel inside. Your actions will dictate your charactor and belief system.

    This really has very little to do with your teens, to be honest. This raises more questions about your system of belief, morals and authority of your home and children. Sorry to be a Dr. Phil, but it is what it is....

    If you do NOT condone sex for your teens, than it's a simply matter of "no". If you don't care about your teens having sex, than let it be a clear "yes." No waivering in between.

    Personally, we would never encourage sex among teens, but hey - we're just "old school" like you said. :-)

      I see nothing wrong with sex in your teens. Perhaps you are an 18yearold, and an adult. If you end up screwing your life up by having sex, perhaps getting yourself or someone else pregnant, that's YOUR fault. You are an adult; Lay out the consequence

    No, I wouldn't do it. Being old school has nothing to do with it. Teenagers need leadership and guidance and just going along with what they want is not my idea of leadership and guidance. When they get older they'll thank me for being "old school."

    No, I would not. There are a number of risks. Many people may not think of the balcony of the house, but this is something to think about as well. Back in high school,  I lost a dear friend of mine due to the balcony of the house falling down.

    Yes I would. Let your kids have fun! If you raised them right and you have nothing to worry about as long as there is a chaperone.
