First off, I just want to ask really, did your children inherit your arrogance, or was that one of the lessons you warned them against? You seem to be a do as I say type person. Secondly, to shutup, report it or not, doesn't matter. There's always going to be something for everyone to gripe about. So thanks, you solved absolutely nothing. Also, the prom was for the eastern portion of greenbrier county, so that actually encompasses more than just lewisburg therefore, perhaps you would like to start a new thread to bring your ill will to light on the subject? Then maybe someone can report that as well.

I bet if someone had left that party and had an accident a lot of the people posting on this thread would be singing a different tune. If this woman knew that the party guests were drinking and it can be proven, she should be charged. Also, if someone can prove who bought the alcohol they should be charged as well. I don't think it was an actual guest who complained to a parent. It is probably somebody who heard rumors about the party. This lady was stupid to host a party for minors at her home, allow alcohol, and trust them not talk about it. She was just setting her self up for judgment and trouble.
OK really

I think it has been stated: she was not there & pretty much every (kid) yound adult has said she was not there & they were all fully aware of where they were & what was happening ahead of time!
No one was held against their will, no one was forced to stay, no one had alcohol poured down their throat, no one was assauted or raped. In short, absolutely nothing bad happened!
I would have to say this is one of the best f'ing prom stories I have ever heard!
Get over it and get on with your life!

[QUOTE who="East student" To begin, College students just returned home; they were our source for alcohol. Do you honestly think Barb would buy it for us? She is not stupid and would never do anything to let it fall back on her. She wasn't even there for that matter. Furthermore, do you really believe we care to sleep in our cars? It's not a big deal at all, and if your son/daughter really did have a problem with it they were allowed to sleep in the house. I know every person at the party, and I can assure you it wasn't their first. You parents are naive if you think your son/daughter has never done anything like this before. Also, it was not a "rager". The party was very chill and no one got out of hand. I have an open relationship with my parents because I know they will not freak out like most of you. I would rather my parents know where I am rather than feeling like I have to lie to them all the time. If your son/daughter does not feel comfortable talking to you about partying, you must not have a good relationship with them. This is not a matter of "I have higher expectations for my child" or "If my child does that they will never be successful." I, along with many students at the party, have a 4.0 or higher GPA and we are well respected in the community. Your kids were not partying with a bunch of losers who will never go anywhere in life. Chill out! To "informed parent" you clearly are not an informed parent or you would have known your child was going, and how DARE you mention anything about Barbs problems last year. Everyone goes through hard times, and she is doing great now. It is truly pathetic you feel the need to bring her down even more. To "precisely", she has not been dating Kevin for months now. All of you are commenting on matters of which you don't even have the correct information and I must laugh while reading these because you all sound ridiculous. I know you may be thinking I have no idea because I haven't had kids yet, but this isnt even about your child's safety or them partying anymore. Clearly you have nothing else to do with your pathetic lives if all you do is downgrade the people of Greenbrier County. I hope you can develope a better relationship with your children like I have with my parents. They are not my "buddy" either; they give me rules and I know the expectations they have for me. Maybe you should get off of here and try to do the same because summer is coming soon, and we all know your kids will be going to more parties. I hope you have learned some lessons from this. First, don't get on here if you have NO CLUE what you're talking about. Second, downgrading other people just makes you look like a miserable person (not the concerned parent you're trying to look like). Finally, your child clearly feels uncomfortable with you, and maybe you should try to talk to them so they can explain why they feel so intimidated by you. I'm sorry you had to learn all of this from a student, but truly hope my message was clear. Thanks.[/QUOTE]First of all you might have a high gpa, but clearly going in the wrong direction, You are starting out your young adult life BREAKING THE LAW, that evidently with your own words that your parents condone this bad behavior. I like most of these parents pointing out the facts here about how wrong and Illegal this matter is, are teaching our kids to not break the law. I am also betting that most of the parents who are speaking out against illegal activities have a real good relationship with their children. Not to mention that you just told on your friends who supplied the alcohol to underage KIDS( Which is illegal). As far as learning anything from a student, you just proved the point of how young and how some students make some wrong choices in there young lives, that unfortunately could ruin the rest of there lives from bad, illegal choices.

That is not her boyfriend, and that is also not the issue that this pathetic thread is about, so I would advise you leave his name out of it.

Hey why don't you use the word 'illegal' again?
Tell me what LEGAL punishment is going to come out of this epic waste of time? Nothing. You don't have a legal leg to stand on. It is over & done with & nothing came of it except this unreasonably long thread on topix. Take that to the cops (like you all keep threatening to do) and see where it will get you!

Once and for all, let it go. Nothing is being resolved by any of this. People are always going to disagree on the best way to raise children, and every family has their own set of morals and values. The bottom line is that we ALL love our kids.

I would be afraid to be your child here again mother not buddy, and it will stay that way.
Your post was paiful to read. If your child learns anything from you can it be the use of punctuation?
Can you teach them about the abuse & overuse of 'lol'?

No, but I can teach them that there is not one good thing in illegal drinking and that even duma@@'s are allowed to have an opinion. That good enough punctuation for you? And, that it is sad that all you learned from the post was to punctuate? Learn to spell and then tell me all about it.

I never did say I was taking it to the cops, so pay attention when we speak. I'm pretty sure just, because noone got arrested, does not make it legal to break the law. We are just pointing out the fact that it is Illegal to serve alcohol to underage and to drink alcohol under the age of 21. All, by the way if the cops wanted to they have all the confessions(evidence) on here, it is just like a wriiten statement from the kids here. They just trace the ip address back to the computers.

and there is the attack! Let's keep this going forever!
Tell me something, does some magical thing happen overnight when a person turns 21? You know when illegal drinking becomes legal? Does it become a good thing then? Will it be acceptable for you then? If your 'child' was there at this party then they are atleast 17 or 18 right? So either they are an adult or they are about to become one overnight. I think you should prepare yourself for when you no longer have control over your 18 year old 'child'.

Um comments on topix are not evidence. Evidence of drinking is when the police show up at the party find kids with alcohol in their systems & drinks in their hands. People can write all day long that they were drinking at this party & it is still not legal evidence of anything.

The drinking age used to be 18.
I went to parties and got slammed occasionally, drove occasionally, did some things that I know now and knew then were wrong.
I wasn't illegal for me to throw the party the night before graduation where we had kegs supplied by another classmate whose father ran a brewery.
It was understood by the more gracious parents that if they allowed children to come to parties at their homes some kids would end up sleeping on the premises.
At my house we woke one morning to a VW bug in the middle of the front yard- but from a neighbor's party!
My family served bbq and fixins and I smile taling some responsiblity for all the people looking so tired in their graduation day pictures taken the next day.
Ah, youth.

i completely agree with you! These parents are way out of hand, and im sure they had some fun when they were 18! Some people just want to start trouble.. I sure do cherish my party days, and look at me now, i make a great living and have a wonderful loving family.... U cant expect an 18 y/o child to be perfect and not party a lil bit!
