AMUSEMENT PARKS: 6 WAYS TO SAVE



- Visit on weekdays .. Saturdays are parks' busiest days, so many offer discounts for weekday attendees,

- Buy online .. Ticket prices are often 35% cheaper, plus you'll save time waiting in line.

- Pay with plastic .. Discounted theme park admission is a common credit-card perk

- Go late .. Arrive at the park once the afternoon rush has dispersed, and you can easily save 20% or more with so-called twilight entry passes,

- Consider a season pass .. Passes typically pay for themselves in just two visits, and offer additional value through freebies and special access,

- Check your wallet .. Employers, banks, professional organizations and clubs may offer discounts or specially-priced tickets.

10 Major Parenting Mistakes You Can Easily Avoid

  • Everyone makes mistakes when they raise a kid, but Your Tango’s parenting expert Tara Kennedy-Kline has written a list of easily avoidable parenting missteps:
     
    1. You compare other people's kids to your own—in front of your children.
    2. You force children to display affection to strangers.
    3. You tell your child it's not his/her fault even if it really is.
    4. You end your requests or commands with "OK?"
    5. You don't follow through on consequences.
    6. You make unrealistic and idle threats.
    7. You blame the child for your reaction.
    8. You react out of embarrassment instead of responding to the reality of a situation
    9. You don't allow your children to play and explore.
    10. You decide on a parenting style before your child is born and tell everyone how perfectly you will execute it.

Would you do it??
