About 100 parents came out that day to the home, where teens and other young adults acted out a free improvisational performance of a typical teen party.
During the performance, Jakob Waite, 15, discussed with other teens that social media and texting are the best ways to find out about parties.
"Many adults think that teen parties are the same as when they were young. We want parents to face the current realities and learn their attitudes and perceptions must change," said Katherine Kasmir, project director of Straight Up Ventura County.
Moorpark resident Marisa Chapat, a mother of two teenagers, said she appreciated the performances to keep up to date with what kids are doing at parties. She said parents need to be proactive, instill curfews and always check their children's social media accounts.
Meyer said prescription drug use at parties is common, and parents can drop off prescriptions they no longer use at a drop off box in the lobby of police Nike Hoodie Jd Sports stations.

could kill them. Many of the drinking games are also very sexual."
Straight Up Ventura County hosted the reality party in collaboration with police and the school district in Simi Valley, the Rancho Simi Recreation and Park District and local youth organizations.
"Parents have come up to me and have said what they've seen educated them on the realities out there, and it has made a difference. They know what to look for now and what questions to ask," Ewing said.

Another teen downed a seemingly innocent looking energy drink with alcohol in it.
"My parents are clueless about what I'm drinking," he said.
Reality parties for parents will be held April 26 in Thousand Oaks and May 10 in Agoura Hills or Calabasas.
The teens played a drinking game called "high low" with a deck of cards.
