  • I'd go and check it out myself, lol - volunteer as a chaperone one night - of if there's any chance you could look 18, bounce in there with a mini-skirt on and join in ! lol if I couldn't check it out, I wouldn't allow my child to go......but I do have to say I agree also with leksismommy and roninkane - it really depends on how much you trust your teen - just make sure she knows never to put her drink/food down unattended - if she does, never take another bite or drink from it....

  • I wouldn't let my own 15 yo dd go. I know she won't take any drugs or alcohol. You have to know your own kid and trust your judgement. Eventually they will be in a situation that you won't know about and they need to learn how to say No to drugs and alcohol. If you raised them right they will pass the test.

  • I went to teen clubs at 15, and I never drank or did drugs. It really depends on how much you trust her judgement and her maturity.

  • That would be a no. I wouldn't let a 15 year old into a club at all, ESPECIALLY if someone told me it is known for drugs and alcohol. I would rather keep her home and no she isn't getting into any trouble.

  • No. Not unless I could go with her, but no...I would not let DD go to something like that, known for drugs/alcohol, at 15.

  • Been there done that. Oh and older guys then 18 find a way to creep in. Not a smart idea to let your child go. My mom never would let me go but my friends mom lets us when I stayed the night with them.
