slightly... paranoid parent

Jump to last reply

DH wants to take DS on a trip to Singapore and Thailand.

These are places we have travelled to (minus children) previously, we (I) loved the shopping and people and places of both destinations.

Which is why DH thought it would be great to take DS to also enjoy the beaches, theme parks and culture of these detinations.

DS under 10. Quite independant and, at times, doesn't realise the possible danger in situations. This is where DH and I agree to differ.

As a slightly paranoid parent I tend to see the 'risks', the 'dangers' and/or the possible negative side to travelling through Asia with a child under ten. Sure DS isn't a toddler or teenager - which have their own set of situations - but still not confident about a multi-country Asian Adventure -as yet?

what your thoughts?

go now? put this off until DS is older?

Which countries to Avoid? which countries to embrace?

what to look for (or look out for?)

label DS with contact details? etc

you are probably getting a picture about what is travelling through my head, so all feedback welcomed.

recent experiences, those who suggest other countries first, etc etc
