fallen asleep and then choked on her own vomit. Who would they be blaming then? Allowing kids to be their own watchdogs when they are teens is a recipe for disaster. Parents teach children responsibility not by telling them what to do but by showing them what a responsible person does. A responsible parent doesn't allow their teenager out until 3AM drinking with their buddies. Saying nothing implies it's all okay and safe to do. Foolish parents bringing up foolish children who will become the next generation of foolish parents.
