DD1 has a school trip and it's to America it's about £2,000 I can afford but the problem is that I am scared of her injuring herself on the holiday. I have been worrying myself because I went on a lot of ski holidays and when I was at uni I broke my arm I really am concerned about her injuring herself. This is the first time she's been away for a full week from me normally her trips are 5 days long. Does anyone have any advice about handling these worries? x

Thank you x

Unfortunately I have no advice, but I wanted to let you know that you're not alone. Every time DS goes on school residentials I can't relax, but he absolutely loves them! I suppose the big thing is to never let them know you're worrying. Easier said than done.

Thank you I am excited for her, I don't let it show that I'm worried, when she was in year 3 I was worrying so much when she went to PGL. I'm going to try praying and giving her a long talk about safety. I went skiing in Austria at the same age as her and these boys nearly got themselves killed by fooling around and showing off- the main reason I am scared, if she starts to mess around and hurts herself. I would only blame myself she goes next feb, this october she's going to Italy it's sightseeing and geographical experiences so not as worried for that.
