Parent to Parent: Natalie’s Advice

  • If you take a midnight trip into Canada on a whim, bring passports
    for your children or you'll have a hard time getting them back across
    the border, especially when your sleepy son hesitates on his birth date.
  • Don't do an early spring trip on a rushed schedule because when you run into a snow storm, everyone gets stressed out.
  • Don't call your parents from Canada at 1 a.m. and say, "Guess where we are??" unless you are prepared for their response.
  • Don't let your child with a new driver’s license attempt a round-about in a state that’s unfamiliar to all of you.
