Blogs with Tips on Traveling with Kids


Making the decision to make a long distance trip with your little ones in tow can be difficult, especially when everyone you speak to on the subject advises you against it. Thankfully, these 30 blog posts discuss the ins and outs of traveling with children, offering great advice, hints and tips to help ensure that your trip goes as smoothly as possible.
International Travel
Traveling with your children is one thing; traveling overseas is a different animal entirely. From government travel regulations with children to practical advice on how to best manage the situation and minimize the chances of trouble, these five bloggers come to the rescue.
Kids and Air Travel
When restlessness and boredom spur your children to misbehave in the car, they’re generally only irritating you and your spouse. On an airplane, however, you’re surrounded by strangers who may not be overly accommodating to your child’s disruptions. These five bloggers tackle the issue of plane behavior, navigating the airport with a child, and preparing little ones to fly.
Long-Distance Drives
The family road trip is a time-honored American tradition. It’s also the source of the oft-repeated cliché, “don’t make me turn this car around!” Avoiding the pitfalls of road trip travel can be easier than you may think however, especially if you take the advice of these five bloggers into account before setting off on your trek.
Travel Preparations
The key to preventing the bulk of travel difficulties lies in proper preparation. Making sure that you and your family know what to expect, have everything that you’ll need on-hand, and have a back-up plan in place can make all the difference. Juggling all of those lists, however, can be a bit of a challenge. Thankfully, these five bloggers come to the rescue with their own advice for preparation and packing.
Diversions and Distractions
Keeping your kids from fighting amongst themselves, acting out due to boredom, and generally wreaking havoc on everyone around them will require you to have a sufficient number of diversionary tactics, distractions and games in mind. These five blogs are filled with travel diversions, and can prove to be very valuable resources when you set off on your journey.
Kids and Jet Lag
Little ones are just as susceptible to the scourge known as jet lag as their adult counterparts. While preventing it altogether can be almost impossible, with the proper preparation you can manage to stave off the worst of it. These five blog entries discuss the issue of junior jet lag, offering real-life advice and practical hints.

30 Blogs Focused on Boosting Your Immunity


As the weather begins to cool down and the days get shorter, thoughts naturally turn to strengthening and protecting your immune system to prevent seasonal colds, flu and other illnesses. While nothing listed in these 30 blogs should be considered a substitute for the advice and care of a trained medical professional, they do offer up plenty of food-for-thought information that can help you make the most of all your natural defenses this cold and flu season.
Dietary Choices
What you put into your body has a very real effect on the way that it operates. Maintaining a good diet comprised of fresh fruits, vegetables and other nutritious fare can make a noticeable difference in the power and strength of your immune system. These five blogs are filled with information about the best ways to shore up your body’s defenses naturally, simply by altering your diet.
Stress Reduction
Excessive amounts of stress can affect your body in a variety of unpleasant ways, not least of which is your ability to fight off illnesses. These five blog entries discuss the impact that anxiety and stress can have on your body, and share ideas to help you relax so that your health isn’t compromised by the difficulties you face each day.
Exercise
A sedentary lifestyle can lead not only to obesity, diabetes and other health complaints related directly to the excess weight, but also to the weakening of the immune system and other vital physical processes. These five bloggers tackle the issue of being active, and explain how a lack of activity relates to your body’s ability to fight off illness.
Herbal Treatments
While there are some that regard herbal medicine, naturopathy and herbal supplements with suspicion or outright derision, there are others who remain staunch proponents. The information contained in these five blog entries can help you make an informed decision on the issue so that you are able to form your own opinion.
Get Some Sleep!
Lack of sleep and exhaustion are surefire ways to diminish your body’s ability to fight off infections and illnesses, and to wreak havoc with your health in general. These five bloggers explore the connection between a lack of sufficient rest and a weakened, ineffectual immune system.
Skip the Antibiotics
While antibiotics can, and often do, save lives threatened by infectious diseases, modern habits of overuse and excessive prescriptions have already caused a variety of antibiotic-resistant strains of potentially serious illnesses. Understanding what antibiotics do and do not treat effectively, as well as the proper attitude regarding their use, is an important aspect of protecting and maintaining your immune system.

How to Stay Connected to Your Child While You’re at Work


Being away from your child all day long is no easy feat, even for a mom who loves her job and her childcare provider. But just because you’re physically separated doesn’t mean you need to be in the dark with regards to how your child spends the moments of his day. With a little creativity and effort, working moms with a willing caregiver can stay in touch in more ways than you may think.
  1. Leave a love note. Leaving a love note for your caregiver to share with your child during the day is one way to make a low effort, high impact connection with your child. A simple drawing of you two holding hands or a short note reminding her of the fun things you’ll do when you get home can go a long way in fostering a connection with your child while you’re away.
  2. Have a video chat. With technology you can literally have a video phone chat from the palm of your hand. If you’re traveling for business, a video chat would even allow you to sing your child’s favorite lullaby or read his favorite story before it’s time for him to go to sleep.
  3. Text photos. Asking your caregiver to text you a photo or two during the day can help you get a glimpse into what your child is doing and give you something specific to talk about when you return home. If your child made a picture for you, texting a photo of it to you and getting a quick response back will surely bring a smile to both of your faces.
  4. Have a daily call. Set aside a time each day when you check-in with your caregiver and say hello to your child. Since your child’s afternoon naptime is likely to coincide with your lunch break, making a quick call home at the same time each day may be something that you can easily incorporate into your daily schedule.
  5. Meet for lunch. For parents and caregivers who have the luxury, meeting for lunch on occasion can be a super way to stay connected. A small café or even an onsite restaurant at the office can be a great way to have short, but wonderfully meaningful connection.  An added bonus? You get to show your child off to co-workers.
  6. Record yourself reading a book. Do you and your child have a favorite story? Make an audio or video recording of yourself reading the book that he can listen to or watch. Some books even come with micro-recorders that allow you to record yourself reading the story. As your child turns the pages, he gets to hear your voice reciting the story lines.
  7. Leave a video message. Make it part of your morning or evening routine to make a short video recording for your child. Leave it loaded on the laptop or iPad for your child watch.  If you have a smart phone you can simply record the video and text it to your caregiver.
  8. Encourage your caregiver to keep a journal. Provide your caregiver with a journal that she can write in each day. Ask her to keep a journal of the things your child does. When you review the journal you’ll not only feel like you have a solid idea of how your child spent his day, you’ll also have an idea of what you can talk to him about. Your child’s eyes will light up when you ask him about his latest adventure and he’ll likely be thrilled to share details.
For some working moms, the hours can seem more like days when they’re separated from their child, and for others the time simply flies by. While with young children out of sight is often out of mind, setting aside a few minutes each day to make a connection can not only help to foster your parent/child relationship, but can reassure your child that you’re thinking about him even while you’re gone.

Ninja Rescue



If you saw a fight on the train, what would you do? Well, if you are like the young man in this video, you pull out your samurai sword and stop it! This awesome video shows two men cornering and repeatedly punching a third man. The young man sitting close by has headphones on and a backpack at his feet. As passengers on the train shout for the men to stop, he simply stands up, slides off his headphones, reaches into his backpack, and pulls out a huge samurai sword. The two men do not see the sword at first, but when they do they run for it. The man being beaten seems to get a new surge of courage from his helper with the sword and yells at them as they run out of the train. Wow. Now that is a way to stop a fight fast! Do you think the young man was a ninja in disguise?

Things Kids Say About Stepparents




“Dad Knows How to Do That!”
 – Bitterness at the change in his home, the absence of a biological father in the household, and a perceived effort by a stepfather to replace that absent parent can leave children feeling as if they’re forced to defend the father that they no longer live with full-time. These comments can be hurtful to a stepfather that’s making a genuine effort to connect with his stepchild, but should be acknowledged as a defense mechanism that often abates as a personal relationship is established.The Stepfamily Association of America estimates that one-third of Americans are part of a blended family that includes a stepparent, stepchild or stepsibling. This massive cultural shift has taken place over the course of only a few generations, leaving many stepfamilies struggling to make sense of their family dynamic. When a child’s household unit changes, first to accommodate a divorce and then with the remarriage of one or both biological parents, these are some of the things that kids are commonly known to say.
  • “She’s Mean!” – The myth of the “Evil Stepmother” is so culturally ingrained in the collective consciousness that it can be a knee-jerk reaction for children to classify their new stepmother as “mean,” even when she’s a genuinely nice and affectionate person.
  • “He’s Okay.” – Kids that are reluctant to engage in a discussion about their new family dynamic often make ambiguous statements, refusing to classify a stepparent at all. This reticence may fade with time as he realizes that liking or even loving a stepparent isn’t inherently a betrayal of his biological parent.
  • “She’s Scary!” – Change is frightening for everyone to an extent, but especially for children. The simple act of altering the fabric of his established routine by moving into his home and assuming a role of authority can make kids perceive a new stepparent to be scary, despite a lack of any efforts to intimidate or frighten by that stepparent. While it’s also natural for a biological parent to be suspicious of their former spouse’s new love interest, it’s best to consider every aspect of the situation and do a bit of research before making a snap judgment of the stepparent’s character without cause. Leveling accusations of abuse or harassment is potentially devastating, even if they’re later discovered to be unfounded.
  • “She’s Not My Real Mom!” – In the heat of an argument, a stepchild’s first line of defense is a stinging reminder that a stepmother is not a replacement, and will never take the place of their biological mother. While it can be deeply hurtful to hear those words, stepparents should take the time to consider the feelings of the child.
  • “We Do Fun Things Together!” – Not all relationships between stepchildren and stepparents are negative; in fact, many are healthy, functional parts of the family unit. It may be a bit painful to hear your biological child rave about the great adventures he has with his new stepparent, but an effort to be grateful for his happiness and apparent adjustment to the situation should be made.
  • “He Makes Mom Really Happy.” – Though many children of divorce harbor a desire for their parents to reunite, the knowledge that each parent is finding the happiness with their new spouse that was missing in their marriage to one another can be enough to put some of those hopes to bed for older, more mature children.
  • “I Love Her.” – The ultimate goal of most stepparents is to establish a strong, affectionate relationship with their stepchildren. Proof of success comes when a child willingly utters those three magical words. Reaching this milestone is rarely easy and can be fraught with obstacles along the way, but a bit of patience and understanding can help feelings of love, trust and security to grow.
The shift in dynamics that accompanies the inclusion of a stepparent can create strains on both the relationship between the biological parent and child, and the new marriage in some cases, according to a study released by Robert Emery, PhD. Making a concerted effort to foster resilience and a strong relationship between a child and his stepparent can alleviate some of this pressure, but it often requires more effort than originally anticipated.
