Teenagers love a party - especially during prom and graduation season.  Often alcohol is involved.  Some parents think that hosting a teen drinking party in their home will keep the kids out of trouble.  While their intentions are good, it's illegal, unsafe and unhealthy for anyone under age 21 to drink alcohol.  Did you know that parents who host lose the most?  Here are the facts:  If you make alcohol available at teen parties, you can be prosecuted.  If you allow teen drinking parties in your home, you can be prosecuted.  Everything associated with such a violation; including personal property can be confiscated.  So parents, please protect yourselves and your kids - Don't be a party to teenage drinking.  Do your part to make this season safe for everyone.  Parents who host, lose the most:  Don't be a party to teenage drinking is a program of Prevention Action Alliance.
