I don't know, I guess it just depends on your team. I guess every team will have a different dynamic. I would think with younger kids it would be scary to be thrust into a room with adults you have never seen before in your life, so personally, I always went in with them. But I've always completely stayed in the back or way off to the side and I do not do a thing, I just stay quiet, I don't carry anything, I don't talk, etc. Now that my kids are older, I could see them going in by themselves. I probably wouldn't have the max of three adults go in though.
