Leave Toys at Home
Some parents supply quiet toys to keep kids entertained, and for young children that is okay. But once your pride and joy reaches preschool, steer clear of this habit. The major reason, apart from being cumbersome to tote around, is that kids come to expect these diversions. The one time you forget, your toy aficionado will be out of sorts and you will have a hard time finding other diversions to make him happy.
