Prom and Graduation Season: Protecting Your Children

It’s one of the most exciting times of the year, the sun is finally out, the Sox and Bruins are winning and guess what, it’s prom and graduation season! Prom is an incredible experience that culminates a whole year of hard work and perseverance during one of the most confusing times of a person’s life, high school. This can also be said for many high school seniors who are graduating this spring and ready to celebrate. You should celebrate! You deserve it. Celebration along with year ending ceremonies is a right of passage and it is important for you and your child to understand how to celebrate safely and within the limits of the law.

This week we are going to be discussing a variety of topics ranging from prom safety, minors and drinking, to texting while driving. We truly believe that this special time in our lives should be cherished and completed safely so that we can all look back and remember our wonderful young years.

To start off I’ve compiled a few local articles with great information about these topics. Enjoy!

A great tip from Safeandsober.com
“Weekends and especially Prom night are the worst times to be on the road. There are more drunk drivers at that time. Be sure to drive carefully and know where you’re going. Keep your cell phone charged in case of an emergency and take extra precautions like pausing another second at a red light or stop sign.”
