Letter: Parents, get a grip

Roger Marolt’s column (“Kids get drunk; teachers get blamed for ruining their evening,” The Aspen Times, May 27) is very poignant, as was Meredith Carroll’s “The ostriches of Aspen” (The Aspen Times, March 1). Roger asks, “What if a drunken kid leaves prom and gets into an accident?”

How easily we forget.

There is cause and effect, natural consequences and tough love. Parents, get a grip. Thank God the teachers care enough to do what’s right.
