Stranger Danger, Sausalito, A-Z challenge
Travel with me to Sausalito
Stranger Danger...if you've got kids, grandchildren and the like you're know what I'm referring to. Kids are taught at a very young age about Stanger Danger. Now think about that and the mass of people at an airport. When you travel with a child they don't know what to expect. They don't know whom to afraid off or who's "safe". You have lots of travelers, airport personnel, security people. Is it any wonder children scream, cry, crawl on the floor or refuse to stand in line or talk to people who ask them questions?
Parents should prepare the child for what will happen, what they'll see so they're not taken by surprise. Knowing ahead of time what to expect provides a level of comfort. If you prepare your children, they'll be better travelers, your job will be easier and less stressful and your fellow passengers will be appreciative. They should know ahead of time they will be walking through the line without being carried, and that they'll need to remove their shoes.
Adults have comfort zones, children really are no different.
**After the close of April's A-Z, I plan to continue to write a post a day in the month of May using again the A-B-C's as my guide. My focus for the month of May will be Spain. I've been planning and almost have every letter thought out. If others are interested in continuing to blog daily using our A-B-C's, please let me know. We could start a linky and continue what we've begun during April. I don't imagine it will be anywhere near the scope of the annual April Challenge. But, if you're interested, please let me know in your comment. And even if you're not up for another blog challenge, do stop back in, I have much to share from recent travels to Spain.**
If you're a new follower, please let me know so I can reciprocate.
