An adults passport expiring April 2024'
And a child's passport expiring dec 2024 are definitely valid with the new rules aren't they ? Major anxiety and need reassurance I'm not going to get refused entry to Spain in a few weeks !
Keep seeing so many news reports of people being sent away from the airport and it's making me worry

It's the issue date that matters, not the expiry date. If the passport is for longer than the 10/5 years then the "excess" is no longer valid for some countries.

Look at your issue date and add 10 years onto it and discount any extra months.
The kids one will be fine as its valid for less than 10 years anyway

Although we're only in 2022 so your passport will be ok for at least another year

Adults was issued 15th April '14 so it's fine isn't it ? And child's issued December '19

Its very irrational as we are in 2022 not 2023.

It doesn't look like your 10 year passport had extra months added on so you don't need to deduct any months from its validity.
