Prom safety: can I trust other parents to keep prom night sleepovers safe?

In an effort to promote a safe prom season, John Knight, MD, director of Children’s Hospital Boston’s Center for Adolescent Substance Abuse Research(CeASAR) launched Teen-safe.org, a website that explains the medical and social dangers of underage drinking. Here Knight discusses how parents can ensure their teen is safe at a prom night sleepover.

In the days leading up to prom Thrive will feature more advice from Knight on how to keep kids safe during this fun, but potentially dangerous time of year.  Parents are  strongly urged to go to safe-teen.org to see all these videos, as well a wealth of other information on the medical, legal and emotional consequences of underage drinking.
