Not For Children Even If The Like It For clarification, the original question was, is the Philippines, safe for children, and it is not....The topic was not about what kids prefer....Kids prefer junk food over healthy food, however, it is the parents responsibility to provide a clean, safe, and healthy environment for their children....I never said what the children prefer....My post was from a child protective point of view....My natural daughter loves splash mountain, at Disneyland, I refuse to ride it...I like the submarine ride....At least one person has been killed on splash mountain....No one has died on the submarine ride...Is that better? Did that add some clarification? You need to understand what the gal was asking....She was asking, Is the area safe for more than one child, she brought up, biracial, which means nothing, there, but she should not bring the kids....My friends that I mentioned, have extensive military and law enforcement background, special forces, and they have lived in PHI, collectively, for over 50 years, have worked side by side with both the federal and some local police, and I will be returning, to retire, and live full time, because I have 6 adopted Filipino babies who need a father....As a side note, one adopted daughter is only 5 years old, and she was attacked and bitten by a dog, in one of the sweetest and nicest hoods in the Comval province, of Mindanao....Now, true, it happens in Kanosville, as well, but we have a population of what? Over 300 million people? And true, my other 5 babies, have never been bit, however in PHI, you die from dog bites....Here in the USA, you need to be killed by a bit-bull, but I can go on all day on the common sense side of this....And maybe you are more savvy than most people....Your kids may prefer it to Disneyland, but you are the parent and are experienced, and you have been lucky, and luck does prevail as king in the PHI....I find it irresponsible to recommend children to the Philippines, until the adults are aware of what needs to learned....I also noticed, all you disagreed with was that your kids liked it??? Kids love to fire guns, firecrackers, as well....What about the other 98.9% of my post? No complaints there? You cannot disagree with my post, and endorse children to make adult choices and not the rest of the post....Another suggestion....Make sure you register with the US, Embassy website, for travelers, and read the travel warnings, for the Philippines, but make sure you fully register, leave a copy of everything you have about your whereabouts, such a passports, itinerary, and a short paragraph of where you will be staying, phone number and all....Anyone who wishes to disagree, fine post, but I can see this web page is just for the promotion of business, not the safety of children's lives....By the way, I hear hiking along the Iranian border is beautiful this time of year....I know of a few people who loved it so much, they extended their stay in Iran....Even their mothers loved it so much, they stayed a few days as well....Sort of a family vacation.
