We would be 2 doors down the corridor. Basically I'm worried about them sneaking out.

sneaking out where ? to do what ?

No. Check they are where they are meant to be.

You know your dd and her friend far better than we do. If you're truly worried about them sneaking out on the lash, book a s/c apartment instead so you can monitor front door. Will probably be cheaper, just far less chance of you and OH enjoying a peaceful holiday shag...

I really don't know! I've never had a 15yo daughter before... I would have thought probably not. But the main thing is the responsibility of looking after someone else's child. If something happens to mine, that is one thing, if something happens to someone else's child in my care, I would never be able to forgive myself.

to join up with friends..

Maybe talk to the other girls parents about what you think acceptable rules would be

That way you will have established how much 'care' you are expected to have & how much 'responsibility' they expect their daughter to have

What's the alternative?

I have a 15 year old DD and I wouldn't trust her not to hatch a plan to sneak out on the razz when we're all asleep.

When I was 15 I used to have sleepovers and sneak out all the time. We used to take the bus into Manchester and go clubbing and get the night bus home.

I was a very good and swotty teen overall! I didn't drink, smoke or have boyfriends, so i was quite sensible. I think most 15 year olds would be off out if they had the chance!

Hope that helps!

I would have trusted my (now 17 year old) Dd at 15. But ..... I remember being away at 15 sharing a room with my 10 year old sister and sneaking out to meet a boy and party with his friends. I was generally a pretty well behaved teenager but it was too tempting.

I would go for an apartment.

You'll spend the entire time worrying otherwise and I don't think it's actually really fair to expect them to resist the temptation to sneak out. They're too young to be out alone at night let alone in a holiday location....but it'll be so tempting for them...

When we were 15 my friend and I were on holiday with her parents on a caravan site.BF and me slept in the awning attachment on the caravan.Did we sneak out? Too blooming right we did for the entire fortnight exploring the after dark delights of the small Welsh town.We couldn't believe how easy it was to fool the parents.50 years later we find out that they weren't as daft as we thought and her Dad had followed us every night SO BUSTED! grin.

Ask your DD's friends parents what they think and if they say it's fine let them but stick a tracker(GPS)on your DD's phone.

Honestly if I was away with my parents I wouldn't have dared tried to sneak off and I used to go clubbing from the age of 13 when I was staying at a friends house,but if my parents were near by no way would I have.

Tbh they can still sneak out if you get a 2 bedroomed apartment or something. Its relatively easy to sneak past a sleeping parent...I know this as I was once 15 and sneaking out wink
