The end of the school year means that many schools across the country are preparing for prom, and the ways that some teens are inviting their dates is getting very elaborate.

Jared Chin, director for training and curriculum at Northeastern University's Center for Sport in Society joined us for more on the subject.

He said with the advent of social media, many kids feel that over-the-top invitations are the way to go.

Chin said that schools shouldn’t need to establish rules on it, but that parents should talk with their kids on the impacts the invitations can have.

He said that it is important to talk about relationships and find out if a video is just to get attention on social media or if the person asking really does have feeling for the other person.
