2 Talking it over While most young people go through this time having fun and without any problems there are things parents and carers can do to reduce the chance of anything going wrong. You can help to make celebrations and activities safer by: keeping up with what is going on in your childs life getting to know their friends. You can be interested in their life yet still respect their need for privacy talking to your teenager about your concerns, such as hosting a party, going to parties or having separate holidays knowing the law about supplying alcohol to people under the age of 18. For more tips on talking to teenagers check the information on the NSW Health website (

3 Careful planning well head of the party date by you and your teenager will help to make sure that parties are fun and safe. Consider some of the tips below. Decide how long the party will go for and if some areas are to be off limits. Send personal invitations to guests. Party proof your house. Lock away valuables and items that may easily be broken. Let the neighbours know about the party. Enlist the help of friends and older family members to set up the party and supervise. Organise party activities to introduce a fun element and take the emphasis away from drinking. Let the local police know that you are having a party. Make plans in case someone becomes intoxicated, sick or there is an emergency situation. As the host parent you should be aware about the law on supplying alcohol to minors. (Refer to section: Alcohol, young people and the law). Consider: is there going to be alcohol? If so, do not serve alcohol to people under the age of 18 what you will do if people under the age of 18 bring alcohol to the party or others want to supply them alcohol? Will they be asked to leave? Will the alcohol be confiscated and given to their parents after the party? making sure there are plenty of non-alcoholic drinks, water and food available having a plan for how you will respond if guests arrive intoxicated or bring alcohol and other drugs. For more information about hosting parties you might like to look at the websites listed on the page. Going to a party.

4 You might like to explain that you need more information before you make a decision. Consider: discussing any concerns and negotiating some conditions contacting the host s parents checking on details such as adult supervision, location and arrangements regarding transport. discussing what will happen if there is alcohol at the party and explaining that it is illegal to supply alcohol to a person under the age of 18 (refer to Alcohol, young people and the law information sheet). Sometimes, by making contact with the host and asking these questions, your teenager might feel that you do not trust him or her. It is important that you explain that you are concerned about their safety. Talk about how they are getting to and from the party. Some ideas might be: leave the car or motorcycle at home share a taxi with friends to cut costs stay the night at a friend s place use the train or bus organise to be picked up by someone who has not been drinking alcohol or car pool with friends parents nominate a designated driver who is responsible.
