503. Memory

Kids remember.

Stop and consider this seriously. Keep it foremost in your mind.

449. Shows Parents Will Enjoy

Young kids like to watch shows, and they really like it when you watch with them. Pick ones you think are witty or interesting so you won’t be bored out of your mind. Try these:

  • Word Girl
  • Ruff Ruffman
  • Signing Time (surprisingly good music for a kid’s show)
  • Veggie Tales
  • Garfield and Friends (the original is funnier than the computer animated one)
  • Phineas and Ferb

433. Change

Give kids your change.

302. Trade Seats

Trade seats with the family flying with children so they can sit together, even if it is for a middle seat. Don’t be selfish.

Or stupid, either. Think this through: Do you want to be the one to comfort the hysterical four-year-old — to be the scary stranger trying to soothe, entertain, and take full responsibility for them? No, you don’t. And you shouldn’t.

278. Cups

Kids are the reason parents don’t have matching cups.

261. Zoo

The zoo is a wonderland for your children. Go on the first warm day of spring and buy season tickets; it’s cheaper than going twice.

234. Cry

It’s okay for your children to see you cry.
