My daughters 16th birthday is coming up this fall and I am stressed to the max. I want to give her a party of some kind. Something special. But every party she has been to in the past year has included alcahol. She's a smart girl and I'm not blind I do know she drinks on occasion at these parties (her father, plays the roll of an osterach and pretends to not know so if even on kid was to show up drunk it would be ww3). But I also know she is the responsible one who looks after the others and is low key herself when it comes to consumption - she is the life of the party - a wild fun crazy girl - in sober state, so is to busy having fun to be bothered sitting with the drinkers missing all the fun - she knows its more fun to be sober..... the problem is, In hosting a party she attracts outgoing hyper wild teens - who usually end up being the partiers & drinkers. So even though I know she knows she can party & have fun without alcohol - how to I make sure to succeed in a sweet 16 without alcohol either being snuck in by friends, or kids arriving drunk. I do not want to be responsible for a room full of drunks. She is a very popular girl, and a very active girl. She has recently started at a new school & has a ton of friends there, has a bunch of friends that she still see's regularly from her old school, friends from soccer and friends from her competitive dance team. So just taking a small few close friends to a small quaint dinner isn't an option. She's a group orientated girl & if you ask her who her best friend is, she'll list 15-20 people. Anyone have any ideas?
