Hey, parents – quick question: Are your school-age kids still schooling from home?
If you’re nodding your head (while possibly shuddering), you’re not alone: Much of the world is in the same boat.

Teens who are mature enough to travel without their parents – and the parents who are comfortable enough to send them alone.
