13 + 1 = Trouble

December 18, 2007

My 13 year old son received an invitation yesterday to a party. A party at a girl’s house. On New Year’s Eve. A party that was going to last until 1:00 in the morning New Year’s Day.

Am I alone in thinking that this is wildly inappropriate for 13 year olds?

We told him no, he couldn’t go, because we will be out of town on New Year’s Eve. (Thank you, Suzanne!) I added that even if we weren’t going to be out of town, I didn’t think that it would be an appropriate activity for him to attend at this age. He seemed to be okay with that; he even added that he wasn’t all that excited about going anyway.

Crisis averted. 🙂

But seriously, what parents let their 13 year old kids go to a party at someone else’s house until 1:00 in the morning, New Year’s Eve or not?

  1. Er, I don’t know. I’d have to know the parents really well — as in, well enough for him to spend the night.
