Think! Before Taking a Child Back to Your Hotel Room for Any Reason
When you travel, you might encounter children who you want to help directlyTaking a child to your hotel room for food, to bathe themselves, or to rest is dangerous for you and the child. Here are some reasons why:
- The child may then feel it is okay to go to rooms with adults, and the next time could be abused or raped.
- It puts you at risk of being accused of being a pedophile and getting in serious trouble with the law.
- This might send the wrong signal to the child as to why you have asked them back to your room and you may be propositioned.
- You put your personal belongings at risk.
If you see a child alone on the street and you feel they need help, call ChildSafe hotlines or local organizations in the area.
