My husband and I were discussing more today on this whole subject, too. One thing that came up with camp. There is this program in one of my daughter's sports that if you do well, you're invited to a 2 week overnight away sleep away camp in another state. It's a pretty big deal opportunity, but we had to discuss under what circumstances we would be okay with that (how old she is, how mature she is, how easy contact would be, if we might stay somewhere nearby while she's there, if she could have an adult we trust accompany her there, etc). I think it's one of those things you decide case by case, no matter what family you are in, but we're able to keep options open, so we will. I agree movies is a harder one, mostly because of the setting and circumstances for that.
Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy!
