Kids fly alone?
my kids dad lives in NY... He's coming out to bring them to spend a week with them and he asked for their return flight that he could pay the flight attendant to care for them... I said no way. No freakin way. My kids are 7 and 9 and are very independent and travel a lot and are extremely well adjusted to our families ways. We all get along fine but them flying alone? Not happening. They could handle but I think of delays or what if the plane has to land somewhere else or if they get scared or sick.. So no way.
I've let go of a lot of my fears and know that them spending time with their dad and his family is so important. And he's always made sure that he flies with them whenever they travel (his family lives in TX) and they went to Hawaii for his wedding and flew with their grandma... Which was fine.
But solo?? No.
Hope this doesn't start a fight.
Their dad will have to figure it out. I let them fly to Texas with his sister (who is not kid friendly but nice enough) and to Hawaii w his mom which I think she's great but a little spacey. But by NY. Nope.
When they're older sure.
But his choice to move to NY so he will have to find a way to deal.
I'm not ready. They're not ready. I know the attendants are great but still doesn't replace a parent or family member.
No argument. We don't fight. We look for ways to make everyone happy. He doesn't have custody so it's my call and I hate to pull that control but he knows it.
It's sll good. Not gonna happen so he will have to figure it out.
I do hope kids can get to NY tho..to see it and experience it.
Bottom line is I'm not okay with it and neither are they. He can fly me out to fly back with them I don't care. I want them to go and have fun and ill do what I can but I don't have $1000 to offer. Ill do what I need to do for my kids but not let them fly alone. Nope.
