It is a dangerous game to play as a parent- playing the "friend" role instead of being a parent. The mom probably started out thinking she was helping her daughter to be " the cool girl throwing the cool party" now all that is left is embarrasment and humilation for the family.

I agree the parent(s) of the child who hosted the party was wrong, but what about the parents of the kids who were at the party? Are we raising our children so bad that our own children will skip school just to get drunk?

For any adult to allow under age drinking is a crime and needs to be prosecuted as such. You can raise your child the best you can, and only hope that they will make the right decisions when they leave your house. I would like to think that all adults would try to set a good example for their children and the children of others. You have to lead by example and this was not a good example. Nothing will be done to this woman and you will never see it in the paper again. Officer Thompson should be commended for what he has done.

Sure kids wanna drink. I'm 28 now and drank quite a few time before I was legal. There was just one difference wih me I never got caught by police, if I did I wouldn't have complained. Also funny it was at a doctors house.
