Do you let your kids go on field trips without you at the toddler age? My girls had a field trip set up to go to a dairy farm with their class and I couldn’t make it. I was in a mandatory class for work and couldn’t change my schedule. Since Steve couldn’t take them I kept them home and my parents watched them.
I love their teachers and trust they would watch over them. I love their school and trust they would protect them. But still I am not comfortable in any way shape or form letting my girls go off like that without Steve or me. I just think they are too young and growing too fast.
My Dad thinks I am being paranoid but my Mom leans more to my point of view and my sister agreed with me. Maybe I am being a little controlling and scared but at age 3 I’m not ready to let them leave the nest. I know I know it’s not like they are moving out but crazies are everywhere just waiting for class trips like this to pounce!
So weigh in; what are your thoughts? To field trip alone or not?
