Would you let your daughter go to this party?

Don't know if I'm being overprotective! DD, 13, has been invited to a party by a girl she claims is 'one of her best friends' but in reality she has been shopping with once. I haven're met the girl and she doesn't go to DD's school. I insisted DD showed me the Facebook invite, transpires it is a house party and around 200 kids seen to have been invited. No clue on supervision from adults and no way to find out. Invite also says 'bring your own drink' which could be innocuous...but then again. We are leaning heavily towards 'm way' cue one very unhappy teen which I can't bear. Opinions please?

*leaning heavily towards 'no way' I mean!

I'd ask the parents about it before I let my DD go.

I would talk to the parents. I would also be leaning towards no.

No. She's 13 and it says, 'Bring your own drink'.

Bring your own drink definitely means alcohol grin
200 kids that's insane? If try and find out about supervision. It doesn't sound like there is any I can't think of any sane parent who would want 200 kids in their house.
I wouldn't let her go I don't think, but if you do - I would be dropping her off and picking up at agreed times

Can't talk to the parents...no contact details and don't know them...worrying in itself

No way. She may be unhappy about it but I wouldn't let my dd go at her age.

Not a chance.

Pennies Thu 10-Apr-14 16:15:03

Then absolutely no.

KepekCrumbs Thu 10-Apr-14 16:15:10

No way! I would warn parents if at all possible. I've heard too many horror stories about these parties getting out of hand to feel happy about something like that.

DramaAlpaca Thu 10-Apr-14 16:17:04

Definitely not.

Florin Thu 10-Apr-14 16:17:31

Not a chance would I say yes

MaryRose Thu 10-Apr-14 16:19:31

Thanks folks. I think it has to be a no and glad I'm not being over the top (which she thinks I am!)

Marcipex Thu 10-Apr-14 16:23:05

Only if I was going too.

glucose Thu 10-Apr-14 16:24:56

Nope.

ExcuseTypos Thu 10-Apr-14 16:26:52

You don't know the parents
You can't contact the parents
There's 200 teenagers going
They are all taking drink

My answer would be Not in a million years.

Not a hope in hell. That party has all the hallmarks of ending up as the one from this thread.

I had this last year with my 15 year old - only the parents were going to be in Thailand shock She was really pissed off that I wouldn't let her go, but it was a very similar situation and there was no way she was going. She did hate me for a bit. I care not.

AlpacaYourThings Thu 10-Apr-14 16:31:19

Not a chance! That sounds like the parties that end up in the newspapers and the parents weren't even aware.

200 kids, bringing their own drink? No, I would not let my teenager go to a party on those terms - it sounds like a recipe for disaster.

MaryRose Thu 10-Apr-14 16:32:17

Oh Jesus just read the other thread!! Poor parents!

sisterofmercy Thu 10-Apr-14 16:34:13

I agree with the other posters. it sounds like a recipe for disaster and I don't think the friend's parents even know about it.

jellyhead Thu 10-Apr-14 16:34:17

I wouldn't let my 13 year old dd go. She may hate me for it or she may be grateful I said no as it takes the decision out of her hands.
