Last night a parent makes enquiries about hiring security for their child’s16th birthday tomorrow night. You can tell via the concerned tone, voice quivering that the situation is a little stressful. The parent indicates that they have hired staff via U-nome for her son’s 16th birthday two years ago. I mentioned to the parent that I remembered their party as we had issues with gatecrashers, kids turning up intoxicated and one child being transported via paramedics to hospital .
I indicated that in the last 4 weeks I had observed and witnessed more serious issues at these events particularily with violent gatecrashers that are alcohol affected
The parent has decided to manage this party on her own !!
HELLO !!! Any BYO 16th birthday party near a beach, railway line and in the middle of school holidays is asking for trouble.
Why don’t parents get it? This is not just about their child’s party but ensuring everyone attending that house party is safe and arrives home alive
What price would you put on safety?
Hopefully your child is not going to this celebration
