OMG!!! Are you just now realizing stuff like this happens? What rock have you been under? Didn't you ever go to field parties when you were younger? Lots of drinking going on there. Or are you one of those goodie-two-shoes that didnt do anything except RAT people out!!!

why do you call them high school parties. Are they hosted by the high school. Field parties have been a part of life for years. Parents assume the responsability if kids are on there home drinking. Known fact some parents and kids think they are above the law and will take that chance.

I'm the parent that wants better for my kids. And yes I do know that there's drinking at parties. I do know several kids that paid a fatal price for drinking at parties. But I also thought that as parents we should encourage our kids that its not cool. Lets just put it like this, if I find out who is giving under age kids alcohol yes I will be a snitch and turn them in. You either don't have teenagers or your the parent that just doesn't give a fuck about what your kids do!!!

Really?? I said one cuss word, when dealing with some people you have to, to get your point across. And to answer your question No I don't. I sure didn't see you respond to my comment that included the the foul language. I posted this for the other parents like myself that actually care about our kids!! Not for you, who obviously think under age drinking is ok.

Yes, I care for kids and I see danger. If you, as a parent host a field party and a kid gets killed driving away, it is your rear end that should be in trouble. Don't say boys will be boys.

I am going to work hard to keep my kids safe, I hope that your kids don't influence them.

We need to supervise dances better at school. If the high school sponsors a dance and does not check for drinking it is their fault if bad things happen.

We are poor examples for our kids. We brought bars and drinking to Harrodsburg with our votes. Now kids think that if the adults approve of it, why is it wrong.

your a joke. I don't know of one high school that serves alcohol at a school dance. It's not the high schools fault if bad things happen. It's the students, and parents. Some parents want to blame the schools for everything. Parents need to start taking more responsibility for their own kids. Some do, some don't.

I did not say that schools serves alcohol at school dances. I said the school must be responsible and attempt to make sure that kids don't sneak alcohol in. It is a lose-lose situation. When the school tries to supervise the dance and keep alcohol out it makes the kids mad. If the school does now work hard to keep alcohol out and a kid has an accident and he has been drinking at the dance then the parents will blame the school.

You are right about the rest of what you wrote. Parents are the ones who raise the kid and parents are responsible for how they turn out. The only problem is that kids influence each other and by reading this topic we can see that some people just say that kids will drink at field parties and I guess at those dances, so why not just let have a good time.

I totally agree with "concerned parent". But if I catch my daughters drinking while still living in my house then I will bust their ass. Point blank! And if it's at a party where the other parent is buying and providing alcohol then I will call the law as well. I know a 15 who almost lost lost their life because he/she was drinking at a party then he/she decided they was done but no.....all the kids had to make fun of this kid cuz he/she was a "lightweight!" So he/she kept drinking til the point where he/she had alcohol poisoning. This poor kid was in a coma for days. So don't even sit here and say that underage drinking isn't influenced by other kids!!!!! They do it to fit in not because the parents didn't raise them properly.

Our job as parents is to raise our kids to be respectful and safe. If that means staying away from parties where drinking occurs I will try to do that as much as possible. That is called being a good parent. You have to drink to be anybody during school years? Has it gone that far?

Some kids drink and some don't. My parents taught me to drink at home so they don't care. I try not to drive after a party but you can't do that all the time. I be careful.

We don't invite the goodie two shoes to our parties, but we don't hate them. We just know that they won't have a good time cause they don't drink.

I graduated and I got a part time job. It had not hurt me.

I know you believe drinking is bad, but think back to when you were in high school am betting your drank, dont justify it by saying the age was lower.

I strongly believe,not just because am a high student but as person who lost their boyfriend in a drunk driving accident. i believe that parents should let their kids have alcohol at home and let them go to parties, so they don't try to hide it from them ,abuse it at any chance they get to the point they get alcohol poisoning, because they were never introduced to it. the world parents are raising kids in, where alcohol bad for them is creating young adults who will abuse it.

NO, You never HAVE to use foul language at any time. That's a choice. Drinking is a choice. Unfortunately, sometimes people make stupid choices about drinking. And I would never condone underage drinking. Even though I did my share as a teen. Learned some hard lessons too.

honey, CHILD, don't EVER drink and drive. And if anyone HAS TO DRINK to HAVE A GOOD TIME, that's sad. That's dependence. That is a turn off for me,If you can't have a good time unless your drinking. I lived in that mindset for years. I am a lot happier now. I feel sorry for people who can't enjoy life without a drink.

In other countries, children have a glass of wine with dinner. In the good old USA an eighteen year old person can serve their country. And risk their life for everyone's freedom,but they can't go in a bar and order a beer. If children are taught about alcohol and learn early,things might be different. But myself, I would not serve my child alcohol. I just think the age law is not right under some circumstances. Just my thoughts. The system is pretty messed up. Oh well.

The people of Harrodsburg approved the sale of alcohol within the city and the Kentucky General Assembly made sure by changing laws that Shakertown could sell alcohol. It is silly to think that kids won't pick up on this and do what their parents have approved.

Let the kids have fun and get off the backs of parents who allow kids to drink responsibly and under adult supervision.

You are one sensible kid. Parents should provide alcohol at home and teach kids to drink beginning about age 10 or 11. A little wine, a beer or two, or a shot of Jack Daniels never hurt anyone and to learn that from parents is a good thing. Kids are going to drink at parties and even school dances and other events. Why pretend that they do not? Let them drink, but have responsible parents, teachers and other adults there to see that they do it in moderation.

Your child will drink anyway. They will find a way to go to parties where alcohol is served. What you need to do is tell the parents who host the party or the school that has the dance that you want them to realize that alcohol is going to be there and that if your kid is driving make sure that he does not get too drunk to drive. In other words, try to make sure that kids drink in moderation. Actually you could do your child a great favor if you go to Danville and buy beer, wine and hard liquor and teach them to drink in moderation.
