Tips, Tricks, Tactics

•  When traveling with children, set aside time each evening to talk about what you did and saw during the day.  Ask what was their most favorite part of the day.  Keep a journal of those memorable moments.

•  On your family vacation take along a small hand held recording device.  Carry it in a handy location. Frequently, bring the recorder out to record comments from family members about special experiences, fun observations, and memorable lessons. Create an on-going commentary of your trip.  Then, when you get home replay the fun.  Like pictures, it’s another way to capture those special vacation moments.

•  Upon returning from a family vacation, discuss together what worked and made the vacation a fun and relaxing time.  Also, discuss what didn’t work and how that part of the trip could have been handled differently.  Jot these ideas down and refer back to them when planning your next family vacation.

•  Amusement parks, fairs, and festivals offer plenty of family activities and entertainment.  However, they also draw large crowds of people--it’s easy for kids to get separated from mom and dad.  When you arrive show kids the lost and found tent or another easily seen structure to go to if separated.  Also, point out what security guards and police look like.  Make sure your child carries an ID card with his or her name and hotel phone number on it.  Mom and dad should dress in an outfit that’s easy for the kids to spot and remember.  Dress the kids likewise. Carry a current picture of your child.
