They take all the decisions, from what they will be doing to what they will be eating. They even decide what they’ll be wearing as they are in charge of packing everyone’s bags. Mam and dad won’t know where they are going until they arrive at the airport, which makes for the perfect nightmare for self-confessed control freak Rhona.
