To start yes I am going anon, no I won't post pics, if you think I am a troll fine, and no I won't tell you Dh's exact job title lol Now to move on to my question.... My DS is 5 this year and will be attending kindergarten at a small private school. The grounds and security at the school seem very adequate so I feel like he does not need a body guard on the grounds of the school unless a specific threat has been made. My DH however feels differently. His compromise is to have the body guard stay at the security gate and check on DS every hour or so. I think its too much. Even I rarely have a bodyguard unless threats have been made. DH however always has a bodyguard due to the nature of his job. DS is our oldest and we are slightly protective of him. What would you do? Oh also we are not in the United States.

If I felt there was a chance someone could hurt my child and had the money and the school allowed it then I don't see why not. Since I don't know your full situation I can't really say if it's over kill or what.

I agree with DH. I am also over protective though. Mine went with us to cheerleading sign ups.

If you are outside the US, in a country where the threat of kidnapping is very real, I would go with a bodyguard.

If I had to worry about a body guard I would homeschool and hire tutors or a teacher to come to the home if needed.

Why do you need a bodyguard?

Talk to the actual school about it.  Does the child already have a guard assigned to them?  It could be his companion while at school.  Most guards are trained to fade into background for everyone especially children though so they can have a "normal" life.

It depends on which country it is in.  If it's Mexico, Central, or South America, then I would go with what your DH is saying for sure.  There are some other places where there is a high child kidnapping rate that would also make me say that.

She said it in the op, because of her husbands job.

I'm with dh. If something happened because ds didn't have a guard you would never forgive yourself.
