    before i leave my kid with anyone, whether it be for athletics or whatever, it would have to be some kind of established program,
    registered with whatever agency that has authority over such a thing, or the BBB, or whatever...
    and have had some kind of proven track record...

    Even those things i would be leary of... I watch SVU..
    I remember back when i was a kid and i would ask my mother if i can go to this sleep away camp, or that sports program and she would be like know...
    I would be like "WHYYY NOTTT WHAT IS THE BIG DEAALLLLLLLLL...PLLLEEEAAAZZZZZZEEEEE"... now i know why

    My parents didn't let me do ANYTHING.

    While, I understand why, I do think they were OD.

    Virginia Parents Outraged After Walmart Security Allegedly Suspected Father Of Kidnapping Biracial Daughters

    A Virginia couple was shocked to find a police officer in front of their home when they returned from running errands, but they were even more surprised by the reason for the cop's visit-- to question whether or not they were in fact their children's parents.

    Joseph, a white man who didn't want his last name revealed, and his black wife Keana told Fox5DC that they were outraged after the policeman told them a security guard at their local Walmart had suspected Joseph of kidnapping his three young daughters.

    "He asks us very sincerely, ‘Hey, I was sent here by Walmart security. I just need to make sure that the children that you have are your own,’” Joseph said.

    "I was dumbfounded," Keana said. "I sat there for a minute and I thought, ‘Did he just ask us if these were our kids knowing what we went through to have our children?’
    "nice" to see they equally as vigilant if its a yt male.

    I lied - I did go away on an overnight trip with the school choir in middle school. It took 2 months of continuous begging...crying...my choir director calling them to let me go. They even gave me a scholarship to go for free to not give my parents any more of an excuse to say no.

    Other than that, if I wasn't coming back on the same day, it wasn't happening.

    I embrace my paranoia especially when it comes to kids.

    I was in a marching band as a youth and when we did out of country tours my mum volunteered as one of the chaperones. The chaperones stayed together but the marching band would billet us girls with families for life experience in the city/town/country we were in - and it was always a family that was vetted beforehand - and we were always billeted in two's or four's. Never ever a single girl with anyone. They had their restrictions to limit potential abuse.

    I doubt my parents would have let me go if my mother wasn't somewhere in the mix.....I was under 16 yrs at that time.

    Being in the sport competition world, I know that, depending how far she goes, one day I will be forced to make similar decision. It's not always feasible for parents to travel with their kids for special training and competition. I still think that it's really all about trust and comfort level.
