Holiday Travels With Kids!

There is nothing more exciting than going on vacation with the family, but remember that if you are packing for holiday travels with kids, there may be a few more items to bring along than usual. If you are traveling out of the country, some of your favorite products may not be available such as the particular brand of baby wipes you use, so make sure you do not forget anything. You do not want to over pack, but there is nothing wrong with being a prepared family. Here are a few tips for packing with kids:

  • Your Coverplay slip cover and portable play yard. Of course, if you have small children, and especially on vacation, you want to keep them safe but still allow them to play about. The solution is the Coverplay slipcover. Not only does it add some flair to the play yard, it also protects your kids from germs! Sick kids on holidays are not fun!
  • Depending on where you travel, your children may get into messes everywhere they go or the bathrooms may not be well equipped. This means that you have to be prepared at all times. Carrying around baby wipes will take care of any bathroom emergencies as well as keeping the kiddies clean. If someone spills something, you will have baby wipes to clean up the mess on the spot. You may also want to bring some hand sanitizer to kill those germs, especially after sightseeing or playing in a local park.
  • It may be custom for you to bring along car seats and strollers on your vacations while traveling by air. However, these items may cost a lot to tag along. Check out rental prices, as you may find it cheaper to rent these bulkier items than to bring them along for the ride.
  • Do not pack more than necessary. Remember you can mix and match your outfits so for a 10-day trip, do not pack more than three pairs of jeans and five shirts. Depending on where you are going, you may need to pack a warm jacket or a few bathing suits. Only pack the essentials and tell yourself “no” if you know you are bringing too much. Plus, if you are traveling to an area that sells cheap clothing, you may not want to pack all that much; leave room in your suitcase for souvenirs and gifts for your return.

Another Good Reason to Keep Them in Your Wallet

What would you do if you found a wallet on the street? Ignore it and continue about your day? Turn it in to the police? Try to contact the owner and arrange to drop it off? Would you keep it? Depending on the person, the appropriate answer may surprise you. Hannah Devlin of TimesOnline wrote a great blog about a social experiment done by psychologists last year that tested the moral and situational strength of 1000s of people walking down the streets of Edinburgh. The results they found were astonishing, and Hannah goes on to talk about the experiment further below.

The answer, scientists have found, depends rather more on evolution than morality.

Hundreds of wallets were planted on the streets of Edinburgh by psychologists last year. Perhaps surprisingly, nearly half of the 240 wallets were posted back. But there was a twist.

Richard Wiseman, a psychologist, and his team inserted one of four photographs behind a clear plastic window inside, showing either a smiling baby, a cute puppy, a happy family or a contented elderly couple. Some wallets had no image and some had charity papers inside.

When faced with the photograph of the baby, people were far more likely to send the wallet back, the study found. In fact, only one in ten were hard-hearted enough not to do so. With no picture to tug at the emotions, just one in seven were sent back.

According to Dr Wiseman, the result reflects a compassionate instinct towards vulnerable infants that people have evolved to ensure the survival of future generations. “The baby kicked off a caring feeling in people, which is not surprising from an evolutionary perspective,” he said.

Scientists argue that it would be difficult to genetically code for feeling empathy exclusively towards your own child and much easier to code for feeling empathy towards all children. If you find a baby alone, there is a good chance it belongs to you, making it an effective evolutionary trait, said Dr Wiseman.

In the study, 40 wallets were sent out in each photograph category, as well as 40 containing a card suggesting that the owner had recently made a contribution to charity. A control batch contained no additional item.

All of the wallets were stuffed with the same set of everyday items, including raffle tickets, discount vouchers and membership cards. None of them contained money, however.

The wallets were mixed up randomly, and over a couple of weeks were secretly dropped on the streets in areas of high footfall, but well away from postboxes, litter bins, vomit and dog feces.

The researchers planted each wallet about a quarter of a mile apart to ensure that people would be unlikely to find more than one.

The baby photograph wallets had the highest return rate, with 88 per cent of the 40 being sent back. Next came the puppy, the family and the elderly couple, with 53 per cent, 48 and 28 respectively. At 20 per cent and 15, the charity card and control wallets had the lowest return rates.

Overall, 42 per cent of the wallets were posted back — more than the team had anticipated. “We were amazed by the high percentage of wallets that came back,” said Dr Wiseman.

Scientists have also found evidence for a baby instinct in brain-scanning experiments. A recent study at the University of Oxford examined how people responded when they were shown photographs of baby or adult faces.

Even though all of the photographs were matched for attractiveness, activity in the section of the brain associated with empathy was much more responsive to the baby faces than to adult faces. The response happened too fast to be consciously controlled, according to the study.

Whatever the scientific explanation, the practical message is clear, said Dr Wiseman. “If you want to increase the chances of your wallet being returned if lost, obtain a photograph of the cutest baby you can find, and ensure that it is prominently displayed,” he said.
