Would you allow your 14 year old son to play in a band that is at bars every weekend?

Half naked shot girls walking around. Big drunk parties? Would you be okay with that? Even if he's making money?

  • I would be there, too. He is too young to be in a place like that alone.

  • I would go with to supervise :)

  • If I could be there too then yeah. If not, it would really depend on his track record and maturity level.

  • I'm pretty sure that's not legal... When one of my exes was in a band, everybody in the band had to be over 21 to play at a venue that served alcohol... I could be wrong though.

    But no, I don't think I'd be okay with that. Not so much because of the half naked girls, he probably sees as bad or worse at the local mall, but a 14 year old doesn't need to be out that late at night.

  • As long as me, my dh, or someone I trusted was there I wouldnt mind.

  • you would need to go with and I say go! Some of my best memories with my guitarist son are going to his gigs when he was underage. Especially if he is getting paid, that is hard to come by!

  • I used to do that when I was in high school. Go to the gigs.

  • Absolutely. I'd think it was great he was talented enough to make money at what he loves. And I agree with the others, I would go to watch, support and make sure nothing bad happened to him.

  • Find out what you laws are. But I'm pretty sure that even though he's in the band - he can't go into a bar under the age of 18.
