Would you allow

Your kids under age 10 to tour someone's private plane without you?

DH and I follow politics very closely. With the Iowa caucuses tomorrow, I was reading tweets and articles about the various candidates today. I read an article about Trump that said that he let kids under age 10 to tour his plane but said "No parents, they would just damage it."

Would you allow your under age 10 child tour the plane without you? If you would, is there an age at which you'd say no? (They'd have to be able to walk.)

A celebrity plane at a high profile event?  Probably.  Would be like most airplane tours at flight museums, they walk through the body of the plane, sit in some seats, take a peak into the pilot area.

I wouldn't care if it was anyone but him. My kids wouldn't be around him at all.

This is my bias as well. I can't stand him, he's just a big bully.

No not Trump.
Yes to someone I know.

I think so too. If you don't trust the parents, how can you trust the kids? Many kids would behave, but plenty would be trying to climb on things etc. I'd want their parents there keeping them under control.

I honestly don't know. Part would depend on which kid it was. Ds1 was too impulsive when that young; I'd be afraid he'd get himself into trouble. Dd was the same way. Ds2 was more mature at that age, so I'd have considered it with him.

It would also depend on the vibe I got from those escorting the kid(s). Never underestimate Mom intuition.
