Being a first-time parent creates the need to learn a lot of things very quickly. Not only do you need to learn the basics, such as feeding, clothing, etc.; you also need to learn the not-so-basic things, like how to travel with a baby. Short flights aren't usually too difficult, although you will get looks from other passengers. However, those long international airfare flights are a bit more work and a lot more stressful.
If you are like most parents, you are concerned about getting the best education for your kids. Unfortunately, you cannot count on the schools to do it alone. You have to be actively involved in the educational process.
Of course, this is all easier said than done. When do you ever have time?
Well, you can use family vacations as opportunities to teach. For example, visiting a Disney theme park or resort is a good chance to provide instruction about business.
