Just curious, I'm not bashing. I don't think I could do it. I'm referring to letting your child do things like sail around the world at 16, climb mount everest at 13, fly around the world at 7. Seems a little bit too much to me. Right now the 16 year old girl who was sailing around the world alone is feared missing at sea because she went through some storms yesterday and lost contact with everyone, and her emergency beacons were activated. This same family allowed their 17 year old son to sail around the world alone too. At the bottom of the article, it mentions the 13 year old boy who climbed Mount Everest and the 7 year old girl and her father and flight instructor who were killed while she attempted to fly around the world. Do these people really have the best interest of the kid in mind, or are they looking for fame? Opinions? Articles posted below.
I completely agree with you! I remember seeing the story about the 16 year old girl who sailed ALONE around the world on the news. I said to my husband how impressed I was with the young lady but I would NEVER EVER let my girls do that. The dangers are immense and the odds against her survival were very very high. Yes she did it but what were her parents thinking?
