Would you let your sophmore go to junior prom?

My son is a sophomore, but his 2 best friends are juniors, all 3 have girlfriends my sons gf is also a sophomore, but they all want to go to the prom together. I said no after prom parties and they said they will just go to the school party. None of them drive so will probably all pitch in on a limo or more likely knowing them have parents drive them. Ok I say no problem, they are going to "officially switch boyfriends" so DS and his GF can go. Hubby however says they should just wait for their own prom, but agrees that if a junior girl asked him he could go with her! I side with the kids- a junior girl did ask him, it's just his best friends' girlfriend! LOL


Please just opinions on the ? not a lecture about teens not being old enough to date....

BTW these 6 do everything together lately, they really only group date

  • I went to a Senior prom as a Sophomore. I don't think there is anything wrong with it. I would def not let them go to after parties. I would let him go and have a good time.

  • Oh why not? They are only in high school for a short time and this sounds like a strong bond between friends. Who cares if it raises a few eyebrows.....it will give them something to talk about for years :)
