    @woodlandsmom I always wanted to check if parents would be there but I started being a little more subtle about it...like I would drop my DD off and ask the mom what time I should pick her up. No mom to ask, you don't get to stay and yes one time I waited 'til a mom came home.
    Or after prom I wanted to make sure she was going to her girl friends house and not with her BF so i had her snapchat herself at her friends with her mom in the background...a little less embarrassing for them.

    Even as an adult I want to have an idea where my kid is. There is too much going on in the world. So, if she is going out and tells me she is in one part of town, if something happens in another area, I am not panicking. But if she went somewhere else, she could be caught in a bad situation and I not even know to be worried. I did the same in my 50s with my mother. It's called common courtesy. But it also depends on your relationship. For some, it may be intrusive. For us, it is not.
