INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – It’s prom season and high school students all over Indiana are getting focusing on the exciting event.

Finding dresses, suits, ordering corsages and boutonnieres, the students have a lot to worry about.

But they aren’t the only ones worrying. Parents worry about the safety of their student while at prom.
