You decide to bring your child along to experience the large city's history. Since you also plan to attend the main gathering, held in another group member's hotel room with a lot of drinking, you decide to allow your son to bring his best friend. They will be left alone in the hotel room while the adults party on a different floor of the hotel.
1. As a single parent, would you bring your child to a gathering as described above? Would you tell the other child's parents of your intentions or would you only highlight the portions of the trip where the two children would be supervised by you?
2. You are the second child's parent. Do you allow your child to go on this trip with his friend?
3. Should this parent bring her child on the trip or leave him at home with his grandmother for that weekend?
