Vacation Tips for Parents - Introduction

I read the following articles on vacation and how helpful it was for one who has children. I do wish to share those tips with you all, moms, dads, andallparents out there. Enjoy your vacation!

This articles was written by Shirley Henderson and the following is the full reference indication (Work Cited) which corresponds to the MLA citation used below:

'We're on Vacation!' Tips for Easy Travel with Your Children. by Shirley Henderson 

Traveling with children is an art form. Perfecting it may take a bit of finessing, some creativity and a little common sense. However, the outcome will be a relaxing vacation your family will never forget. Nicole Howell recalls a memorable travel experience with her husband and 2-year-old daughter, Mya, during a nonstop flight from Chicago to Tacoma, Wash. The trip was Mya's first plane ride, and the overly anxious mom tried to make sure she had all her ducks in a row. "I felt very prepared," says Howell, who brought along extra diapers, a change of clothes for the toddler and a spillproof cup for Mya. "Everything was going fine until my daughter accidentally knocked over my cup of orange juice on me. I didn't think to bring a change of clothes for myself." Luckily an observant flight attendant had a T-shirt that the soaked mom quickly changed into. Most parents know to expect some turbulence when traveling with their children. Whether you travel this summer by plane, train, car or bus, there are ways to make vacationing with your children a pleasurable experience for everyone. (Henderson)

After reading that article, I realized that sometimes we overfocused on one thing and missed relevant things that may in effect affect the overall results of the entire situation... in this case, Nicole's family's travel. 

I salute the airline company for having the shirt for passengers and the flight attendant is also very good.
