Re: Parental decision dispute
Not 100% sure I really want to stick my foot in this pond, but I do have some experience with planing trips like this.
Fortunately for me, I volunteer with an experienced organization that has rules for this kind of trip.
First the driver should be 21 or older. There should be at least 1 other adult (18 or older). * Both adults should have some training in child abuse prevention.
The car should have extra liability insurance. It should also have a road side emergency kit. Seat belt for EVERY passenger.
All parents should have a copy of the itinerary and contact information for the adults in charge.
Parents should feel comfortable with the adults that are in charge.
Meet with the driver and see how he stacks up.
* Boy Scouts of America Youth Protection Training is free and available to anyone online. I would suggest that as a minimum.
