So your young hero is about to go for week-long tour!
Have you talked with them yet?
Have you gave some tips to be safe during this memorable journey? Because thing are not the same as looks in movies. Real world is different. The trips and holidays we watch in movies are the one which the cast want to show us but the real needs are different. There could be a lot of situation created there. Have you prepared your young star for this? If not then do it.
Because there are so many thing you have to discuss with them and guide them of being good. About not drinking too much, look after yourself and not making an idiot of yourself, not following the crown, being smart, not stupid, about looking out for drink spiking and oh, the one about not getting sunburnt?
As parents you want them to enjoy, safe, sound and in one piece.
Here some key messages before they leave the relative safety and stability of home:
Try avoid alcohol
This is the most obvious message to talk with them about. Discuss about the side effects and harms cause by this. If you don’t guide them about its spiking already, then they would be the part of crowd and may cause some harm to himself. And the main cause of avoiding it is they are there to remember the moments, not to get drunk and came up with blank mind.
Look out for pleasure
Young teens are attracts towards sex, good time, in some cases a fight. Girls are the obvious target for sex, while drunk boys are greatest risk of violence.
Look out each other
Always keep an eye for your mates. It clearly means that kids should tell their friends about what they are doing, who they are with, what they are drinking. It will definitely be a friend that will take a young person to ambo to have their stomach pumped.
Only Trip Events
While in trip, convince them to attend only events organized by the trip organizer, to minimize the risk and maximize the safety.
Dehydration is the big issue for young peoples. It’s a smart move to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
The best of plans fall through. Friends don’t arrive when they should. Wallets, purses and mobiles get misplaced. People get lost, literally. It great to know in advance what to do in these type of emergencies. Also some money and parents contact number tucked away in a pocket is a very good idea.
