Tips, Tricks, Tactics

•  Learning a few words of the country’s language you’re going to visit will be fun for the kids. Using the new words will also make a good impression with the people you meet there... waiters, vendors, grocers, townfolk... all ages!

•  When traveling by auto, use your headlights even during the day; statistics show less accidents occur when driving with the lights on.

•  While camping or hiking parks and forests, have your kids carry whistles.  If they should wander off, a whistle is more effective than shouting.

•  Be a good guest when visiting others... remind children that you expect good manners; be helpful around the house, even the little ones can keep toys picked up; relax on some rules and be flexible with routines--ie: staying up late to play with the cousins or to eat a snack for a meal planned late; compromise on activities; and, thank your hosts with a nice meal out.

•  Hot tub folliculitis affects the skin (rash) and ears (ache).  The bacteria is present in improperly chlorinated hot tubs, whirl-pools, and warm waters used by many people.  Precaution: If you can’t be sure of proper chlorine and acidity treatment of the water... stay out!

•  While out amongst the wilderness it is tempting for kids to sip from a clear bubbling mountain stream or a crystal blue lake... DON’T.  Deadly micro-organisms exist in runoffs from farmland and livestock ranches, dead animals upstream, and a variety of other pollutants.

•  On drive trips with kids, stay away from carbonated beverages, for they require more bathroom stops; sweet juice drinks will make the kids more thirsty; use water with lemon slices instead.
