Yes, no problem
Yes. Dd and her friends were taking the ferry to Vancouver by then, and I had no issues with it. I told dd to act cool and not like small town dorks, to help them stay out of trouble. My nephew and his friends at that age got into a bit of a situation with some bad dudes in the big city, thanks to not being street smart.
I would let them go. Gender doesn't make a difference.
Yep. If it were available, I'd rather my high school senior take a train into a big city than drive her car.
She will be staying the night in the dorm.
I think it would depend on the kid, but I think I would say yes.
I put my high school senior on a plane to LA for a week with her sister in her dorm. They had the time of their lives & are now plotting their next year together. I rode the train from Boston to D.C. Numerous times by myself by the age of 17, so I would probably be ok with that too.
It would depend on the kid. Johnny could go now. He is 13. He is Mr. Responsibility. Matthew? I would have to think about it. He's 16. I would probably end up letting him go, but it would not be a no brainer.
Yep, no problem.
I don't think I would have let my son go when he was a senior. I don't feel like we were overly strict but I do know he had a wild gene (must have been from his father ;) )
Life may not be the party we hoped for...but while we are here, we might as well dance!
