I would say that the biggest tip I have first thing safe when travelling with your kid is to blend in as much as. Don't be a tempting target. There is very little hate crime that you are going to encounter when travelling. Don't have anything worth stealing because that's a you are only after for your stuff, if you have no stuff to steal, no one's going to bother you. Keep the bulky cameras at home. Don't wear a fancy watch; keep the wallets in your front pockets. Better yet, just bring the cash that you are going to need that day, when you are out. The other thing is statistically, it's probably never been a safer time to travel in terms of avoiding disease. There are so many diseases that would plague, Malaria for instance; there were plague of travelers going to certain areas that are way down. I think you will find that. When travelling local pharmacies in foreign countries are incredibly well stock, in fact I found that you can usually get more things over the counter in foreign countries you can hear. So the only thing I would travel with is a full supply of antibiotics, but otherwise I think you are very well covered locally.
