Read this and come back and give me your opinion. I'll wait.

Ok, now the only reason that I post this is because they have been doing this forever! First of all, they do not SEAL the door shut. They simply place a piece or 2 of tape on the door,where it opens. That way they can tell if the kids have left the room after curfew.

When my daughter was in middle school, they went to a convention for two days. A couple of girls in another room decided to sneak out after the chaperones had gone to bed. They were out all night! Not only were they just 14 but they spent the entire evening roaming around a hotel full of strangers. PLUS they hung out with the security guard who gave them CANDY! The parents, of course, did not fault their precious children because God knows that they are too young to know any better. They fully expected the chaperone to be up 24/7 watching them.

I'm also sure that the boy panicked at the thought of not being able to skip out after curfew get out in case of fire. He simply decided to complain to his mom and try to get the chaperone in trouble.

I totally agree with you. My sister-in-law was a youth leader for years at her church and used this trick often. If kids would behave, chaperones would not have to go to such measures.

When I was in 8th grade, six of us kids and two chaparones went on a trip. The four girls stayed in one room, the two boys in another, and the chaparones in another. We girls went to the guys room that night to watch a movie, without asking the chaparones (our rooms were all in a row). We thought it was no big deal, but on Monday the GIRLS (not the guys whose idea it was) were called to see the principal. We were banned from any further school trips, including the Beta Club trip to the beach later that year!

I've never thought that was fair. We'd all grown up together, and were like brothers and sisters, so nothing was going to happen. We didn't go anywhere except the guys room. And the guys didn't get in trouble at all!

(The movie - Back to the Future, the one where they go to the old west. So not worth getting in trouble over!)

After that, the school started using the tape on the door trick. Except the kids just started sneaking out the windows.
