Parents in Odessa will be held accountable if they allow alcohol on premises with underage kids present.  

According to our news partner, News West 9, the ordinance is called "Social Host Accountability".  Not sure what the fines will be?  I know some parents feel they can't fight it (kids drinking), so they figure if they can control it (under their own roof) it's a win. I'm not a parent, but I have to believe it's a very difficult situation.
