    Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    A young persons brain is wired for risk. remove inhibition with alcohol and the recipe for a nightmare is an off-licence or supermarket away.

    Less socially adept teens will take a social compensation approach - and go wild.

    A collection of horror stories:

    1) Invite only and only invite decent people - not ********s. If you're really concerned, ask around and see if any of your friends knows anyone who's a door supervisor that you can borrow for the evening.

    2) If you only invite decent people, then this shouldn't be difficult - you say where's off limits and they'll stick to it, but again, if you're expecting it to get rowdy, then a door supervisor is a good shout again - they can just hang in the hallway and manage the door and the staircase.

    3) Anything valuable should be moved out of harms way. A garage or an attic are ideal, but bedrooms are good places to store these things if you're looking to keep people on the ground floor.

    Pro tip: make sure you have the details for a good cleaner handy for the morning after and make sure that you're considerate to your neighbours - you'll look like a right charlie if the council or the Police come round to break it up when the party's in full swing.

    Haha! Seems a bit drastic? Hiring a bouncer for a house party? But then again, I've never seen anyone do it from past experience!

    Ohhhh god I have some mad horror stories about a huge party my mates and I throw every year. First year was a disaster, we did not anticipate how mad it would be. Gate crashers stole ****, graffittied walls, started fights, broke stuff etc...

    We actually do hire security guards now and charge entry to the party. We use the tickets to have a list we can check ticket numbers against as well as ID people to ensure only the right people get in, one of the security checks the tickets at the start of the night. Honestly for a oarty with 100+ people you must have security. The ticket costs can cover the security, a keg or two and a tonne of sound equipment to hire

    Charge, Ticket and get security
