Parenting Tips of the Day - June 17th

These are a bit late, but here are the tips of the day.
  • Keep Audiobooks or CDs of your kids' favorite stories in the car.  It is a great way to keep kids engaged on long trips if you do not have a portable DVD player.  If the book you want is not available as an Audiobook, you can just read it out loud and record it.  
  • Dry erase boards are great for keeping older kids busy and entertained in the car during long trips.  They can practice writing out their letters and numbers or just draw pictures.
  • Turn a mateless sock into a baby size heating pad by filling it up with rice.  You can place it in the microwave for 30 secs, then place it on their tummy to ease gas pains.  Test it carefully to make sure it is not too hot for your baby!!
 I hope these are helpful.  If you have any tips to share please write a comment and share with us your tips that work for you and your kids.
