What do think about parents who take their 1 year old and 3 year old on a months-long sailing trip on the Pacific, in which they end up needing to be rescued?
Two little kids on a sailboat, going from Mexico to New Zealand, with parents. They needed to be rescued, a rescue which involved several Federal and State agencies.
This ignited a storm of controversy about their parenting and the logic of taking two little kids sailing on what would be a long and dangerous trip, even for the most experienced sailors. Some are even saying the family should chip in for the rescue costs.
As of the time of this question being formulated, their are over 600 comments on the NY Times article. I just skimmed the article, and not read the comments yet, because I didn’t want to put bias into my asking of this question.
What do you think?
