10 "Must Discuss" Items Before Your Teen Heads Off on Spring Break

5. Encourage your child to always travel with a buddy.

Have your child enlist a trustworthy friend to act as a buddy over the course of spring break. Suggest that they make a pact to always stay together, watch out for one another, and be responsible for one another's well-being.

6. Register foreign travel.

If your teen is traveling outside of the United States, register him at https://travelregistration.state.gov. This service is provided free-of-charge by the U.S. government. This simple step will allow the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate to locate your child in the event of an emergency.
