I was at a weekend meet for cross-country once and our coaches took us to a restaurant, one we wanted to go to. Were my coaches obligated to contact my parents before taking me to a restaurant? I mean, I ate at restaurants all the time when I was in high-school, many times without informing my parents. I didnít know that going to restaurants was such a huge deal nowadays....and it is not perfectly tame, it has waitresses walking around in tight revealing clothing. I have no problem with that, I do have a problem with the parents not being informed though. That is what I said if you read it with an openess.
