Would you let your 14 year old

Posted by   + Show Post
My dd was nominated by her teacher for a program called People to People Student Ambassador. If she's picked (chances are slim) she would go to Either Whales, Ireland or Scotland for the summer. Kinda like a foreign exchange student. I don't have all the details yet as I still have to go to the Information meeting in November. The cost of the trip is somewhere between $4000 and $8000. would you let your 14 year old go?

I couldn't say unless I was in the situation. There would be a lot of factors I would need to consider. I would want her to have that experience but I would need to know she would be cared for and safe.

Quoting alexsmomaubrys2:

It really depends on all the details. Where she is staying, with whom..etc.

But yes, if I had the money and it all sounded good, I would let her go.

Assuming the details are appropriate for teens her age, in a heartbeat.  :-)  What a fantastic opportunity!

No I would never send my children to another country without at least one parent with them.

If you can afford it, why not?  But be wary, there are plenty of companies that are scams (even through the school system, but less likely).  What knd of activities would she be involved in?

 It would depend on the details (where she would be staying, with whom, supervision, etc), whether i could afford it, and the maturity level of the child.
