There are underage people at this club all the time! Parents of these teens should be jailed for neglect.

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WHAT THE CLUB IS DOING, IT'S GIVING THEM SOMEWHERE TO HANG OUT INDOORS. IT'S BETTER THAN HAVING THEM OUT ON THE STREETS, RIGHT?

THERE ISN'T ANY NAKED WOMEN WALKING AROUND, AND THERE IS NO ALCHOHOL BEING SERVED. SO LUCKY KEEP DOING YOUR THING, I'LL BE THERE NEXT WEDNESDAY!

the teen night is actually a good idea. Teens are constantly in the streets doing bad and by having this it keeps them off the streets. Weapons/drugs/alcohol isn't permitted in the building, so that cuts down on half of the problems right there. Fighting is rarely an issue simply because there is so much secuirty and most activity is recorded. Plus, teens do deserve to have a night of there own. They also want to have fun too and there is no need to not allow that to happen.

The main reason that nightclubs have teen nights is so these kids will grow up to become bar patrons going to happy hour. It reminds me of the tactics that are used by drug dealers, the liquor and tobacco companies. And alcohol abuse is still our biggest drug problem. The last thing that we need is more drinking establishments and bar flies.

I guess a parent making their kids stay home at night at this age is out of the question. First,at that age they should be at home, at a friends house, watching movies, doing what normal 13-17 year olds "should" be doing. I can assure you bad things are happening at these events. Look at the rate of STD's among these age groups. Today kids are having sex parties, doing drugs, un-imaginable things most parents turn a blind eye to b/c they don't think there baby would do such a thing. THEY ARE DOING THOSE THINGS!!!

nightclubs are good for teenagers.but not at 13.they just entered their teen years and they don't need to experience the nightlife.

however 14 and 15 are ok.they've had more experience with being a teen.not really the 14 year olds.bu they are on their ways.more nightclubs should have teen nights for 14-19.

This is how crap happens with grown men and little girls being taken advantage of. If we cant stop the preditors we CAN protect our kids. Like keeping them home at NIGHT for starters. Then making sure they dress right with clothes on all body parts. Being with them more. Checking cell phones, emails. It is not being nosey it is our right as parents, and the only way these days we cna protect our kids. How can we say we are raising them right when we let them be 21 at 16??

We all need to come together to protects the children! There are not enough of us helping each other by watching our kids and just maybe glancing at anothers if oyu see them alone until you see a parent come back or and adult get them. just a thought!

I disagree with what is bieng said. There is nothing wrong with what these clubs are doing. Its giving teenagers a place to hang out and have fun supervised I mean st least they wont be drinking or fighting!! There are a lot bigger problems for you old annoying people to be concerned with leave us teen agers that like to have fun out side of school and boring movies and crap alone.

i am a 17 year old female, turning 18 this year. im happy with being able to say im a virgin, for starters, cause i know that what im bout to say will make all of you overprotective parental figures judge and look down upon me, without having the slightest idea who i am. so let me give you some background. im a junior, ive grown up with overprotective mother that you all remind me of, ive had a total of 2 bf's in my Life, both lasting about a month and a half, im into sports and photography, i eat junk food, but i also eat healthily W/O my mother having to tell me to. I love to hang with my friends. i am the typical 17 year old girl you parents are referring to.
I see no problem with clubs here in Jax having a teen night. Its not "preparing them to become future alcoholics (LIKE THEIR PARENTS) and bar patrons (refer to last parenthesis), its giving them somewhere else to be than STUCK AT HOME (really.. come on..) or out at their friends party smoking and drinking, cause oh, thats so much better right? thats basically what your saying. kids dont really go to a friends house at this time of night to simply "study like i tell my mommy and daddy cause they dont want me at a teen night.".... uh huh... ok... Reality check! Your children are growing up!! You blink and they go from diapers to dating! Do you really want to spend what little time you have with your children making them resent you because you are keeping them from hanging out with their friends at these ALCOHOL FREE areas for teen nights? Thats your "right" to make that choice yes, but as you tell us children EVERY day, make sure you can live with the consequences of your choices.

I, myself, am turning 18 every soon and with that I will be able to go to clubs. The problem is, is that my friends will not, seeing as they are all just now turning 17. I think that teen nights are a good way for young adults to hang out with their friends before we go off to college and clubbing for the first time way from our parents. The thing about these clubs doing this is to yes sponser themselves and get their clubs name out, but also to allow kids to have something to do. Everyone is under 18 so they dont even serve drinks, unlike when you go to regular club and sneak them because so many people are around they dont even notice. Yes teens do do stupid things and you all feel like you should protect us but i think this way of introducing us to the "club life" is better than overwelming ourselfs at 18 when we think we can get away with more and mess up even more. My uncle is a DJ and he works both teen night and regular nights and he says that he likes teen night better because less fights, if any, no one has to worry about the drink sit. and they are more unbeat and glad to be there, not looking for the next guy they are going to go home with. So YES I THINK TEEN NIGHTS ARE GREAT AND SHOULD BE DONE MORE OFTEN.(Maybe for 15-17 year olds though)

okay seriously all your going to do is make them hate you we make our own mistakes just like u did as a teen and teen clubs are actually really just plain fun no sex no drugs no alcohol its not permitted there's a difference between being a concerned parent and being irrational if you raised your teen right you wouldn't have to do all of that

You are full of crap. First thing you need to accept is that everyone who is OLDER than you is also SMARTER than you. And so it is, you can sh it the fans, but not the players. Go read a damn book.

We do need to protect are kids your right but we also have to believe in our kids to do right instead of wrong when I grew up my parents introduced me to pot since that day I haven't touched the stuff if you tell your kids not to do something they will we all did but we have to trust them to do right instead of wrong
