pregnancy health

Expectant mothers get going, it’s time for you to leave the couch and sweat it out for good reasons, though you shouldn’t be harsh on yourself. The benefits of exercise during pregnancy are no secret. But if you are a non-exerciser it’s not a good time to start sprinting. ‘Get a medical clearance from your doctor before you start exercising ...read more

Lug Loc Luggage Locator

Over the summer, we went on a big family reunion cruise to Alaska, which meant nine adults and three kids meeting up in the Seattle airport. Everyone was coming from different parts of the country, so coordination and timing was key since we had a specific door closing and sailing time. We left at the crack of dawn from San Francisco and happily en ...read more

Travel games to get the kids’ attention

I've been with my kids (7 and 11) alone in Paris for two weeks now. My wife didn't join until yesterday, so it's been just me keeping up a steady tourist monologue and trying to get the kids to pay a little attention to what they are seeing. After five days of repeating the same things without any nod of retention on their parts, I decided to make ...read more

Dad tip #4 – Traveling with teens

Traveling with Teens The protracted screech of a braking train is perhaps the only thing less pleasant than the thought of a no-escape vacation in close quarters with a teenager. Travel can bring out the worst in people and if you are going through a rough patch with your teenager, don’t expect a family vacation to bring out the Waltons in you. ...read more

Must-Read Advice for a Weekend Adults-Only Mini-Vacation

I know some couples who have been married for 20 years and never have had a weekend without the kids since they were born. I wouldn’t recommend this. Married couples need nights out, and even nights away to recharge the romantic batteries. Whether it’s a motel down the road, or a trip a thousand miles away, try to make at least one trip away ea ...read more

For Oregon dads – Crater Lake snowshoe trek

Here's a fun dadventure for those in or close to Oregon. This is a newspaper recount of an expedition made by Jennifer Margulis and her husband, GreatDad contributor, James di Properzio. If you've never been snowshoeing, you probably imagine you'll crunch effortlessly atop acres of snow in your tennis-racket-like snowshoes, just like Yukon Corne ...read more

Guess Who Travel Game

Guess Who Travel Game - Our kids loved this simple game that teaches kids deductive reasoning as they eliminate suspects to find the last person standing. By asking questions of their competitor like "does the person where glasses" or "have blond hair," kids can easily play the game even before they can read. It's an easy to pack travel game, or f ...read more

Giving up your seat on the plane so families can sit together

As I settled into my tiny seat on a recent flight, a woman asked me if I'd trade my aisle seat for her middle so she could be, as she said, " with my girls." She was a young-ish looking mom-type, and my first reaction was to give up my seat. After all, it was just a short 90 minute flight and for the sake of a beleaguered mom, I could afford to be ...read more

Why you teach them to read

We are starting a ten day summer vacation and, like millions ofnpther families, we're spend the first day in the plane. My daughter, age eight, is happy though. She has four books and is just discovering Lemoney Snicket. She's been asking for a Nintendp DS, but we are holding fast against that. I did give in, finally to Wii, but only because we c ...read more
