Lil Tip: A Suitcase of Their Own

If your child gets sad at the thought of being separated from his parents when you steal adult time away — take him suitcase shopping. When you are headed out of town, frame the weekend as his trip. Rather than talking about where you are going, focus on how much fun he will be having at grandma's house or with the babysitter. Once he selects a bag that fits his fancy, help your son pack. Then when the luggage is zipped and ready to go, throw in a few surprises that he can uncover during the vacation.
