ADULT: OFF HOME DIRECTORY SEARCH RANDOM POLL MAKE A POLL

Airport Security and Kids

I am interested in finding experiences of parents as to how their kids responded to airport security. Also, share your experiences as to the behavior of airport authorities, when alarm goes off, while a child is passing through security gates. Further, I would like to know if the parents would like their kids to be screened through security gates or backscatter X rays. I would appreciate getting the views of parents, if they would consider other options (practical and safe), to avoid these types of screenings for their children (for the purpose of this poll, kids, sons or daughters mean pre-pubertal children less than the age of 11 years; if a girl has reached puberty before attaining 11 years of age, the poll should answer behavior before reaching puberty).
