Being The Prom Mom
By: Joe Focarino
Organizing a prom is always a big responsibility and sometimes depending on the group size, may be too big for one student to handle. When this happens, it is only normal for a parent or 2 to get involved in the planning and we at PromTime believe that to be a good move. When a student is responsible for organizing the limo plans, the after party event, and holding all the money it can be a lot of pressure. That student has their own Prom problems they have to deal with so it is a lot to ask to put the responsibility of other students on them. That is where the importance of the prom mom comes in.
Usually within a group of friends, there is a mom that is pretty involved. Often times when the group wants to go out, this is the mom that offers to drive or allows the sleepovers to happen at her house. This mom is trusted and we believe this mom should also have a special responsibility during prom. This Mom is the women the kids trust so we believe she should be in charge of the money and helping the kids plan their epic prom night. That way the kids can worry more about just having a great time and creating memories with their friends.
