Kids are always ready to head home from a show long before their parents. If you have ever tried to sell mom or dad something while junior is tugging, whining, crying, fighting, or otherwise making it clear that “I want to go home NOW,” you know that it’s a challenge.
The answer is to be ready for them by bringing along distractions. Coloring books, an Etch-A-Sketch, action figures, mini-puzzles – anything that will keep them occupied, and make them forget they would rather be home.
