No Sarah you are not stupid or you would have just let her go.  What you have done is gone with your instincts and looked into the situation.  Where better to find it than on a site with ex pats.  With the relevant facts you can argue your case.  If you need any more backing e-mail me and I will point you to a few sites.(I dont think I am allowed to put them on here)
It is difficult these days as children appear to grow up faster than we did.

Hi Sarah
Well done for having the sense to seek advice on this subject and for having the sense to take it. I agree with most of the comments but in your place I would be a bit aggrieved at Steve B's prejudgement of you daughters morals.:(

My daughter is 22 and is a professional diver with a degree in marine and freshwater biology and would find it difficult to get a work permit to work next summer in the job she's been offered.  She'll probably just come over and work in a vollentary basis and dive as a bonus living in our property.  (i've had a couple of drinkys so can't spell!  sorry)

Sarah....I know how persistant and  persuasive a 16 year old daughter can be...I've spent the last 6 months talking my own daughter out of going to Turkey for a year..she wanted to go after her exams.... She spent 7 weeks there this summer... (we were also there)  she has now seen sense (with a little parental guidence) and she is starting college on Wednesday..a 3 year course...thank god! So dont feel foolish that you were considering it...you are not alone.

I have finaly convinced my daughter it is not a good idea for her to go to Turkey for a year when she leaves school, it was hard but with the help of this forum i did it! Thanks for all of your comments, even though she has only put it off until she has finished uni. I will just have to persuade her not to go then unless of course i have moved there by then :D. She thinks by living in Calis it will be like a year long holiday but it won't, she will have to work pay bills etc etc. She has fallen in love with the beautiful place on a first visit, i just hope she doesn't meet a man "she falls in love with" in turkey, how hard would it be to persuade her not to go??? Anyway Thanks everyone, you have helped alot. Sarah
