Keeping it Classy on Prom Night

Every year, prom is one of the most anticipated events for high school students across the nation. Of course, parents and teachers remain terrified that students are going to engage in promiscuous sexual activity or underage drinking, along with other irresponsible activities in association with prom. Many students spend so much time looking forward to prom that they don't always think about the repercussions of their actions, and when prom night actually comes around, teens can be faced with a variety of difficult choices.

Dealing with your Prom Date
Whether you've been to prom before, or it's your first time, everyone's bound to be nervous. One of the most common causes of anxiety is interacting with your prom date. If you're going with a long time girlfriend, then at least you're comfortable with your date, but there is still anxiety about making prom night an amazing and romantic time. If your prom date is someone you don't know very well, you may be uncomfortable interacting with them. It's important to be respectful of your date, and to treat them well, even if they don't turn out to be the date of your dreams. Don't leave your date in the middle of the night; that's just rude. Spend time with both your date and your friends, and make sure no one feels left out. On the other hand, if your date is trying to get you to do things you're uncomfortable with, go to your friends or a chaperon for help; there's no need for you to put up with that.

Making Responsible Choices
It's likely you'll be given opportunities to drink before, during, or after prom night. If offered alcohol, be very careful in making your decision. Getting caught could mean serious consequences, and there are plenty of ways to have fun at prom while staying sober. By no means should you ever get in a car with someone who has been drinking, and if you see anyone else getting in a car with a drunk driver, try to convince the driver to have someone else drive. If you do decide to drink around prom, take responsibility for your actions, and do not pressure anyone else to drink if they are not comfortable with it. These steps will help ensure that prom is a wonderful and enjoyable time for everyone involved.
