Why Promoting Parents Night Out on Social Media is a Bad Idea

Promoting your Parents Night Out (PNO) online is an invitation to get a visit from the Department of Children and Families (DCF). 

Charging for children to be at your school for the PNO is illegal in many states. That’s why we suggest that you charge for the food and drinks and make the event free. Give the kids a wristband that shows they paid.

PNOs should be only held in-house with your students and THEIR guests.

DCF trolls the web, especially Facebook, for these types of events. Limit your promotions to internal flyers and announcements plus emailing your current and past students.
