LW1: Your daughter is 20, not 12! I have been travelling alone (overseas) since I was 13 years old and yes, there are always hazards and you have to be sensible and careful BUT this level of paranoia and over-protectiveness is not helping your ADULT daughter develop any independence or self-sufficiency. Do you really expect her to be tied to your apron strings forever?

TN is filled with the most hospitable and polite people in the U.S. (Nashville has the best). Now if my 20 year old daughter wanted to go to Mexico; it would be a big No, Not on your life, and Not without me by your side.

At 20 years old you are lucky she's telling you anything about her life. She doesn't have to. You need to loosen up the apron strings parents or you are going to lose her for good.
