i hear you. although my beautiful daughter is only 6 so little stress for me when she goes to her first school disco this friday between 5.30 and 6.30, home in time for 'bob the builder'
incidentally she wants to start judo lessons (run by a former commonwealth competitor) with one of her friends later this year. has my blessing to put her in good stead for later on. not that iím a neurotic dad or anything

Cord, I can imagine having your photo on your daughter's Prom dress (or underwear) would serve as the biggest deterrent possible.


has there ever been a movie where the dad goes nuts and kills the drunk kids?

There's always "Carrie", where the mother tries to kill the daughtr who returns from the prom... mind you, she's learns a few 'points' from her daughter.
See how well I block your punches with my jaw!!

Prom night ... not to far away as my daughter is finishing up grade 10 and that will come fast enough. Will have to spend monies on a dress no doubt and invite family and friends to attend which will all have to come out of my pocket. Then to sit there and know I can't make an ass out of myself as I have to be respectable only to see young kids getting stupid; like you said Mark.

Didn't really enjoy my own as my girl friend had recently broke up with me and ended up at it with another guy. Hung around with buddies and though 17 was still able to purchase alcohol but it was no substitute. Had went to my sisters the year previous in 1985 which I had a heck of a lot better time as was able to hit on one of my sister's girl friends that I danced the night away with as well drank enough wine to cut the edge off of any insecurities. Oh the memories.

These will be my daughter's memories so I will let her have them and support her.

Glad all went well Mark. I had a feeling it would. When it comes down to it, it is just a matter of trusting that as a parent you did all you needed to do to teach your kids how to make the right choices. I have seen first hand that you & your wife have done that well for your kids. They are smart, wise for their ages, and have a track record of making good choices so i am sure that no matter the event, they will be fine.
