My easy child is going to Spain with her boyfriend next week for a week. Since she gave him her share of the money, he bought the tickets on line and has the itinerary information, flights, etc. (They are staying with his sister). Anyway, I asked for a copy of the flight itinerary just in case and the phone number of his sister where they will be staying. Both easy child and her boyfriend gave me a weird look when I asked. Whenever I travel, whether domestically or internationally, I always print out a copy of my itinerary and leave it on the fridge - just in case. I would not contact easy child while she's there and don't expect to hear from her - it's not about control. It's about common sense, in my opinion. Even H, who normally thinks I'm paranoid, thinks it's a good idea for them to leave their itinerary with us. I was certain they would leave one with his mom/dad as well, but maybe not. Hmmm. Not to mention the fact that I will be the one who drops them and picks them up from the airport. What do you think?
