    Firstly i have been to egypt many many times, i am english and i have taken my children there, though they are older. We have mostly had wonderful holidays, but as you are clearly worried i will try to give you as honest a picture as i can with warts an’ all.
    I think the main reasons you have been told that egypt is not suitable for young children are as follows;
    it gets extremely hot in egypt over 40 degrees in the summer and even in winter it can be in the 30’s and that makes it very difficult for young children and difficult to protect them from sun burn.
    if you staying in one of the historical areas such as cairo or luxor then there is little to interest young children, if you are going to the red sea the same pretty much applies as most places on the red sea revolve around young people/ divers etc.
    there are some nasty tummy bugs around in egypt as in all hot countries. An adult is likely to take care that they take precautions and be careful about extra hygiene, this is obviously more difficult for a small child and for the child’s parents. There is also of course the slight risk of terrorism, though in my opinion that is just as likely in any country.
    Now having said all of that i have seen many young children in egypt in the places I have said and they seem to have enjoyed them selves without mishap and i think the main thing is that as a caring parent you will obviously ensure that your child is happy healthy and entertained. have a lovely holiday

    they may be at risk of kidnapping.
    so if you do decide to go, make sure you watch over them and make their saftey your biggest priority and concern.

    Lots of tourists come with there kids to Egypt .
    and they enjoy there stay
    its one of the most safe places for kids ,
    how ever you should prepare yourself for giving them extra care while you are here so you don’t disturb others who seek peace and quietness ,
    which is a different story !
    and perhaps that’s why your friends advised you to leave them home so you can enjoy a vacation with out worries ,
    and from this point perhaps its better if you leave them with your mother yet if its not possible bring them along and don’t worry about a thing

    good luck !
