Our son’s anqinban is regularly approached by Public TV to send kids to do some sort of filming: not clear what, but apparently not commercials (PTV doesn’t have commercials? no idea).
Anyway the school has been asked if our son can go, on Thursday. He wants to, my wife apparently has agreed to it, and apart from asking me it was pretty much all set up.
People from PTV will collect him and return him to the school. No teacher or anyone else from the school will be involved on the day. We have the mobile number of the PTV person organizing, but nothing in writing, not so much as a business card.
I suppose if I can establish that other parents have sent their kids along, and they haven’t been kidnapped or killed, I might as well go along with it.
What do you think though? Is it a weirdly informal and really scary arrangement, or am I just paranoid? We’ve never entrusted him to anyone we don’t know before (our boy says it’s OK, he knows the people).
