Are you sure your kid would never do that?

Parents know their kids. They've taught them right from wrong, good from bad and smart from stupid. When kids are out in the world, parents hope those lessons guide their reaction to potential threats to safety. Before kids go off to college, a review of those lessons is a good idea.

Mike Domitrz is  the nation's premier teen skill-building expert. Sunday, June 14, Domitrz will be featured on a Dateline NBC episode called My Kid Would Never Do That. This is a program worth watching for parents and teens.The program, which airs at 8pm Eastern and 7pm Central time, includes footage of actual parties and what teens chose to do when problems occurred. 

Another sobering exercise parents and teens can do together is to review the hazing website of Hank Nuwer at www.hanknuwer.org. Hank has compiled a list of all hazing deaths at US universities. The when and how they happened is instructional for your pre-college teen. What colleges did or did not do in the aftermath of those needless deaths is concerning in many of the cases.
