  1. Vacation Time: Packing Up for Kids


    May 28, 2013 by PO.P Press

    Soltimmar_KoncWe often think that packing for our kids should be easy! The irony is we spend time researching and purchasing just the right items for us to wear on our summer vacation. However when it comes to the kids, we just open the dresser drawers at the last minute and dump it all in or toss in the latest load of clean, folded laundry. Packing for our kids should involve some planning.

    As adults, we learn to make do if it’s unexpectedly chilly or rainy, but our kids sometimes are not as resourceful; a forgotten hoodie or fleece jacket on a cold Maine summer vacation or a shell jacket left at home for a rainy Seattle family reunion is not going to be fun for parents or kids.

    Keep in mind that too much clothing can be the wrong approach if you’re traveling with lots of kids and sharing suitcases. While moving everything from dresser drawers into suitcases seems like a good idea—after all those clothes are small—it can prove disastrous on the other end of your trip when you can’t find anything.

We have several options to help protect your children from the sun’s harmful rays.

  4. PO.P Goes to Camp


    March 12, 2013 by PO.P Press

    Children today often do not have enough opportunities to play, explore and take risks like past generations. Summer camp, whether it’s overnight camp or day camp, provides children with a chance to explore the world and take risks in a controlled and nurturing setting. Kids can develop independence and experience things that they may not be able to experience at home. As you get your kids ready for camp, be sure to share stories about your camp experiences. Involve them in shopping for camp, and let them help with the packing. Kids should connect with camp by reading through the information, watching the DVD or talking to the counselors ahead of time. Acknowledge the possibility of homesickness and talk about how to deal with that–write …
