Ateneo parents on 'open parties'

"We all know that going to parties is a way for teenagers to develop their social skills. So these parents are not trying to be killjoys. They are just concerned about their kids’ safety and welfare.

I fully support these parents and suggest that perhaps some kind of consultation be held between the students and the school administration, including faculty members and parents, about social activities like these. Maybe an agreement can be reached where these parties organized by the students would be required to have some adults present. Hey, we survived chaperones and parents at parties, the kids today will, too." (Read the rest of my column here.)
