Tunnell & Raysor, P.A. - How Parents Can Prep Teens for Summer Trips
As school ends and summer begins, it’s that time of year when teenagers everywhere are itching to ditch mom and dad and take a trip with friends, but before parents say yes, there are some things to consider.
Attorney Kelly Dunn Gelof, managing partner of the Tunnell & Raysor, P.A. sits down with Jimmy and Lisa to discuss what parents should know, and discuss with their children before letting them pack their bags and head out for the summer.
Gelof stresses that parents understand that, even when their teens (if they are still minors) leave the house, they are still responsible for their teens actions, especially when something goes wrong.
Gelof suggests parents sit down with their teens before they leave for vacation to discuss what to do if they end up in a tricky situation. She also suggests parents know what kind of repercussions could come back to them if their child ends up needing their assistance.
