    If I attend a regionals, this will be the one. Its only 5 hours away from me! This may not happen though because my mom doesn't want to leave me alone with strangers. Anyway to convince her I'm safe?

    Sure. You are usually safe in the poke community. As far as convincing her, that will probably be hard

    Blah .

    The Pokemon community is about as safe as you're going to get; I've never met a truly malicious person at a tournament and there are adults everywhere if there's a serious issue. If your mom is truly worried, tell her to message to tournament organizer, who will guaranteed assure her that it's perfectly safe.

    Anyway, I'll be there. Gotta keep up a record of good Regionals runs :p (although I seriously doubt I'm going to get 2nd again lol). My Rangers backpack is probably the easiest way to spot me if you want to say hi.

    This is true. I neither have met malicious people. Heck most of the people I have met, I have been to their house, them to mine or have personal cell phone numbers. Most in this tcg/vg are good hearted. Dorian is the to in this case and her and her husband, Kendall, have 3 kids between the 2 of them (grown up of course). I myself, will be wearing my Green Bay packers get up (so I will definitely not be missed), hat, Matthews jersey #52, blue jean shorts, packers socks and sneakers

    Hi Everyone,
    My son and I are definitely going to Philadelphia for Regionals. I now need to decide if I should play. I would like to play, but considering that my son is 8, I'm afraid of losing track of him in a large crowd of people. If other pokedads have made it work let me know how you did it. If you don't think my participation is a good idea, let me know that as well. Thanks in advance.

    superw8 Did you?

    I know of many people who play in large tournaments along with their parents. One of the most important things to do is to set a spot to meet up if one of you gets separated, and also make sure that your son has friends that he can stay with when you are still playing. I have not done this myself, but I know it works as most of my friends do this every tournament.

    Thank you for responding! We have a 4 hour drive, so it would just be the two of us. I might check out the facility first, then if there is an obvious place to meet up after games I might play.

    ...Your child should be ok. There are many professors and good people who would be able to help if something was wrong. Your child could also just hang out with his friends after the game.

    if this is the first time your son is attending a tournament this big, i'd suggest you sit out, keep an eye on him, and just be available whenever he needs you. lots of things can happen during the long day that your assistance maybe needed, it's actually not that easy to find you in the middle of a round if you are playing, and you don't want your son to have to worry about that but to concentrate on playing the game and have fun.

    i sat out our first nat's when my son was 9, totally worth it. we both played the year after when he's become familiar with the venue and more confident on his own.

    Sounds like great dad advice honestly. I'd take what you can from this post and go from there...

    Thank you so much for the advice. It is probably best to err on the side of caution.
