She's 14 years old and she wants to do some volunteer work when she's off school for Christmas. She wants to help in our local church where they give out food for the homeless. I would like to say yes because I think the fact that she wants to do it is amazing, but I'm a little uncomfortable letting her go there on her own.
I would like to go there with her just to be sure she's ok there, but I can't because I just had twins and they're 16 days old, I can't go and leave them with a babysitter!!

I did it at a local church at 14 and I'm not trying to knock the do gooders but I was propositioned by at least one guy a night. Not every one who goes to a soup kitchen is a family down and out, some of them are just junkies who would rather spend their money on drugs/alcohol. Her hearts in the right place but I would not let my DD go unless I knew she had someone looking out for her.
