Parents Erect Nightclub In Their Home In A Very Expensive Parenting Tactic

nightclub for kidsParents will usually go to great lengths to keep their children safe, even if those tactics are considered “permissive” by other people’s  esteem. Having boyfriends or girlfriends spend the night, allowing drinking in the home, or even hosting a high school rager are some of the most  documented. But some parents in London recently raised the metaphoric bar by building an entire flippin’ nightclub in the basement of their home and it’s not so that Mommy and Daddy can host any New year’s Eve bashes. Not at all. These parents admitted that they erected the hot spot to keep their children out of harm’s way.

Claire Farrow and Ian Hogarth constructed a reportedly “state of the art” nightclub for kids in their basement which sounds like a far cry from any Friday night house party. The club contains a professional DJ booth, illuminated dance floor all the way from China, and flashing lights. The soundproofed dance room is just one of many luxuries in this home as parents can hang out in either their sauna, gym, or theatre while the kids cut a rug.

The parents have apparently spent over £1 million to create their “dream home,” which has been valued between £2.5 million and £3 million according to The Daily Mail.

The couple’s 16-year-old son is apparently refining his DJing capabilities,  splitting the floor with his 12-year-old sister who has friends over regularly for “late-night clubbing sessions.”

Mother Claire told one publication that the intention of the club all comes down to keeping her teen and tween safe:

“It keeps the teenagers under your roof so you know where they are.”

She noted some concern from other parents who deem both she and her husband “mad.” Mad and wealthy as they may be, keeping the kids partying in the home could teach them responsible club-going etiquette for when they eventually do desire to dance outside their sanitized parent-friendly nightclub. Yet, if the kids are hosting all-night dance offs by 9th grade, perhaps they’ll be too burned out on the experience to go in search of it anymore once they get beyond algebra. Only they, as mom and dad, can possibly know.
