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

9. Equip your child with adequate medical documentation.

Provide your child with his health insurance card. If he is under age 18, give him a letter of permission to receive treatment in the event of a medical emergency.

10. You can say, "No!"

Remember: You are the parent. If you are uncomfortable with your child's arrangements, or feel that he may be putting himself in danger, you should deny him permission. You can suggest the safer and more fulfilling option of an "alternative spring break," which is becoming more popular with active youths around the country. Alternative spring breaks offer kids volunteer opportunities, typically associated with humanitarian or environmental organizations. This type of spring break can leave a teen feeling more satisfied than a party vacation with friends.
