Homecoming season in high school is an exciting time with football games on Friday nights and the anticipation of being asked to the dance there is so much to look forward to. For many, the highlight of homecoming season is the homecoming football game where the homecoming court is presented and the queen and king are announced for the first time while others are only focused on one thing: The homecoming proposal.

Now more than ever with the widespread usage of social media, getting asked to homecoming is a really big deal. Having the most creative and well-thought-out proposal is a challenge that high school students dedicate weeks to planning before finally popping the question.

Long gone are the days of just asking your crush to the dance. These days it requires you to be a little more creative, to say the least. Some parents argue that it ends up falling on them and has become a chore every year to make sure they come up with some elaborate proposal for their sons.

In a Facebook post, Amy Carney a mother of three teenage boys argues that parents and students should "just say no to the homecoming proposal production". She believes that teenage boys have enough to deal with and the last thing they should be spending their free time doing is coming up with a "cheesy proposal presentation to ask a girl to homecoming".

Amy Carney wants to know "Why are our sons expected to put on a proposal production to ask someone to homecoming?" and says that coming up with the perfect idea falls on the mom the majority of the time. She argues that her sons are not the over-the-top kind and would not "authentically" perform a grand gesture to ask someone to a dance and states that she won't be forcing them to participate in this homecoming tradition.

With over 1,000 shares and nearly the same amount of comments, an overwhelming majority of commenters agreed with Carney.

So the question remains, "Do boys need to conjure up a rhyme and creatively display it on a poster to invite your daughter to a dance?"
