In many cases, parents are just as guilty about clinging to technology as kids. Believe it or not, it’s not essential that you upload your vacation photos to Facebook immediately after you take them or that you check your email every hour. However, technology is still helpful in small doses while you are at your destination. For example, you can read restaurant reviews online before deciding where to eat in a strange city. And of course, you do want to take photos on your trip -- so you’ll need your smartphone or a digital camera. But you should establish screen time limits for your vacation. Don’t give in If your kids are tech-junkies, there will undoubtedly be some nagging when you cut back or eliminate their electronics. However, after a few days without being constantly online or otherwise using technology, everyone will find themselves missing it less and less. And who knows -- when you return home, maybe you can all be a little less dependent on technology too.

Eco-Friendly Home Made Disinfectants By Sarah Wassner Flynn

Love to keep things spic-and-span? While your house may be spotless, you may be harming your health as well as the environment. Fortunately, for you and

EASY ALL-PURPOSE CLEANER For a solution that will wipe up messy spots, mix two cups of white vinegar with equal parts water (plus a

little essential oil, like tea tree, rosemary or lavender, to add a fragrance, if you want one). To boost its cleaning power, warm it in the microwave in a glass container.

Did you know that the chemicals in some detergents and cleaning products may trigger ailments like asthma and eczema, while others may cause decreased fertility, miscarriages, premature births and cancers of the reproductive organs? These toxins are not only harmful to your health, they are equally damaging to the eco-system. However, if you are feeling crafty, you can whip up some of these create-your-own, eco-friendly cleaners from Women’s Voices for the Earth, an environmental group based in Missoula, Montana. All ingredients can be found online, at your supermarket, or at a natural food store.

CREAMY SOFT SCRUB Do your bathroom or kitchen tiles need a good scrubbing? Mix two cups baking soda, 1/2-cup liquid castile soap, four teaspoons vegetable glycerin, and five drops of an antibacterial essential oil, such as cinnamon bark, lemongrass and thyme oils, for fragrance. Then, tackle those tiles! And once you are done, you can store the scrub in a glass jar for two years. FURNITURE POLISH Shine up your favorite furniture by wiping it down

with a mix of 1/4-cup olive oil with four tablespoons white distilled vinegar and 20 to 30 drops of lemon essential oil. Don’t have the latter? Swap it for two teaspoons of lemon juice and store the polish in the fridge after you have cleaned, to keep it fresh. LAUNDRY DETERGENT This detergent gets your clothes clean without the extra chemicals. First, make soap flakes by grating a pure vegetable soap bar with a cheese grater. Then, mix one cup of the flakes with 1/2-cup of washing soda (found in the laundry aisle) and 1/2-cup of borax, a powder or crystalline salt water softener and disinfectant. Use one to two tablespoons of the detergent per load of laundry. DRAIN OPENER Who knew vinegar works wonders on clogged drains, too? Pour 1/2-cup of baking soda into the drain, and then follow that with a cup of vinegar. After about 30 minutes, flush the train with boiling water.
