You should really change your policy when it comes to UMs Southwest does not consider a 12-year-old to be an adult. They simply do not allow children 12 or over to travel as an unaccompanied minor ("UM"). The ultimate responsibility for a child lies with the child's parent or guardian. If a parent/guardian does not feel safe allowing their child to travel by themself, then they should travel with the child. For what it's worth, I made frequent trips on Southwest by myself when I was 12 and lived to tell about it.
