    I was just speaking about this topic with friends last week. With two teenage kids, I want the them and their friends hanging out at my house, but I am none the less concerned about my liability around the “what ifs”.

    Great job

      Thanks, Steven. It’s wonderful that your teens want to hang at your house with their friends. However, consider a lock on the liquor and beer to reduce the “what ifs”.
