Tell Us: Your Kid Went Where?
Remember when college students shouldered backpacks and went off for a European adventure, alone or with a few friends? We've been hearing more and more about high school students heading off alone -- not on the proverbial school trip, but fancy free, with a friend or two. And many aren't staying in hostels, but taking classy trips working adults might envy.
Some of the kids argue that they have to go to some exotic developing country to do a bit of volunteer work in order to polish their college application.
So we've been wondering: Do you consided this an example of the marvelous opportunities available to at least some teens? Or is it proof of spoiled kids needing more supervision than their parents seem to give? Your thoughts -- and anecdotes and leads -- could become fodder for an upcoming story.
