While your budget might put the squeeze on dining out regularly at restaurants, don’t completely cross the option off of your mealtime menu. Eating out, even occasionally, can help kids develop communication skills and learn acceptable behavior in a public place.
As Calgary locals living on the doorstep of Banff National Park, it can be easy to take our closest national park for granted. Some of us may adopt the attitude that Banff is ‘too touristy,’ ‘too busy,’ or even ‘too expensive,’ and we tell ourselves to stay far away during the popular summer months. Sound familiar?
Is there anything worse than a sick child? The mess, the smell, and the fact that your little one is suffering - now take all of that on the road! Motion sickness affects about a third of the population and occurs when there is an imbalance in the inner ear, caused by the repetitive motion of the car. Symptoms can include dizziness, headaches and, of course, vomiting. All prepared parents would be wise to carry a sickness kit in the car, which should include garbage bags, tissues, wet wipes, mints (if your child is old enough), hand sanitizer, spare clothes, and a hand towel.
