Poll: Teen Drinking at Home

 

Two local parents are facing corruption of minors charges after they hosted a pool party where teenagers were found drinking alcohol.

As many as 40 kids were reportedly at the party, which followed the Episcopal Academy Junior Prom, Main Line Media News reports in an article about the couple facing charges.

Anita Milici-Matarazzo, who hosted the party, said that most of the kids were staying overnight, and said she invited three friends to chaperone the party.

Francis Matarazzo "said it was under control and it was better for him to host the party rather than have the kids out on their own. He also defended his actions by telling police that they were providing a safe location to have the party because the students were going to drink anyway, so it may as well be supervised," reports the newspaper.

What do you think of the Matarazzo's actions? Do you approve of teenagers drinking with parental oversight?
