Foreign travel should be a wonderful and fulfilling experience. However, as recent events have taught us, there are risks involved traveling to foreign shores. Whether you are sending a teen aged child to discover him/herself through foreign travel or you are accompanying your child/children to foreign countries, one thing is clear.
You leave behind the laws, privileges and customs of your native country.
Instead you become bound by, or are a victim of the foreign language, impenetrable legal system, and other customs of the country in which your child has disappeared or otherwise become victimized.
Although the US Department of State travel website is a good source of information, I want to be perfectly clear that the United States Government will never jeopardize international relationships for the safety of an individual person; and there is not an international treaty/law/or agency that overrides a nation’s sovereignty where crime is concerned.
Therefore certain prevention measures should be taken whenever one is planning to travel abroad:
If a crime has occurred:
Cocoon for KlaasKids
Polly’s Guardian Angel for iPhone & Android
The LEO Wristwatch
Klaas Family Housing
Signature child ID Program
Utilizing high tech equipment
Always free to the public
We do not database your child’s personal/private information
