Would you let your high schooler go to an ABC Party?

I just got off the phone with one of my dear friends, her sister from the bay area was down over the holidays with her teenage daughter and the term "ABC Party" came up. She, my friend, had never heard of this and called me knowing that my daughter is now in high school to ask me about it.

I too had never heard of it. We were both appalled at what we discovered.

An "ABC" stands for "Anything But Clothes".

Would you or have you allowed your high school child to attend such a party. Have you ever heard of such a thing?

  • I am 26 and NEVER heard of anything like that.. when i have kids.. HELL NO they will not be allowed to go to a party like this.. BUT chances are if they want to go they just wont tell you where they are going and go.. thats insane that kids actually do these kind of things!
    I have heard horror stories about kids wearing certain color bracelets meaning different sexual things and thats gross also! but this is a new one to me!

  • NEVER heard of it. Wow, I am so glad my kids are grown up. But, my kids usually went around with kids on the Honor Society who also played sports and they spent time at OUR house, watching movies and eating popcorn. Now how is THAT for being square and wholesome? LOL. That was in the 1980's.

  • Are you kidding me? I have 3 teens and I would never allow them to go to anything like this. Don't we have some responsibility here?
