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

7. Make sure your child knows the law.

Many teens venture outside of the U.S. for spring break, to places where the tolerance for underage drinking may be more lenient, or the drinking age may be lower than in the U.S. However, your child should understand that, when abroad, he will be subject to foreign law. Research the legal rules and regulations in the destination country, and make sure your child knows what they are. Many countries have more stringent judicial systems than the United States.

8. Provide your child with important emergency contact phone numbers.
