Spring break ... Tips for parent survival! It’s March, and we are prepping for warmer weather, green beer, and the portent of parental doom — spring break. How can such a festive idea evoke so much dread? Here are a couple of simple tips that will help calm the dread. I’m not saying they are easy, but they are simple: • Vote for good choices with where you spend your money: My girls are forbidden from going to raunchy spring break sites, and I enforce that by not paying for travel expenses to those places. Even though my kids are adults, they are still poor college students lacking funds to sponsor their own festivities. I vote for safer alternatives with my dollars. If my kids want to go to places you see on MTV, they will have to raise the funds themselves. This eliminates most of the arguments right off the bat. I make choices based upon our family value of helping others; sometimes that means helping others make good choices. By basing my decisions on our family values, I don’t have to fight my kids; I just remain firmly rooted in what’s right for our family. • Approve roommates, especially if you are paying for the room: Get cell numbers for all the roommates. This may be tricky, but if they want to stay in a room paid for by you, they will comply with your rules. Talk to the roommates to let them know that you care about all of them. Tell them to designate a driver and never leave a friend alone. There are really sketchy people out there who prey upon single girls. Make sure your kids are surrounded by kids who have the same values. This will nip the majority of all problems in the bud. • If your kids are paying for themselves, all you can do is trust them: You have raised your kids to act in a way that lines up with your family values. If this family values thing is new to you, this is the perfect opportunity to sit down and discuss your values with your young adult. Figure out what is important to your family and then tell your kids that you expect them to uphold those values when they are away from you. Remind them that everyone has camera phones, and those pictures will follow them forever. If they are going to drink too much (forbidding it won’t stop it), they need to pick a buddy to watch

out for them. I know what college students are like, after all, I was one back when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. • If your kids are still in high school, don’t let them go on a spring break trip without you or a chaperone that you trust — period. This is a recipe for disaster, and no amount of sweet talking by your kid will make it sound any better. If you are unsure whether the chaperone seems trustworthy, err on the side of caution. Better a mad kid than a damaged one. • When all plans have been set, release the outcome: Even if you have taken all these precautions, some uncertainty may still remain. It is crucial to take very good care of yourself to quiet the worry that inevitably arises when your kids are outside your sphere of influence. Be sure to exercise, eat right and get plenty of sleep to quiet the worry; there is nothing you can do except take good care of yourself and be ready to act in case of emergency. Set up emergency contingencies before your kid leaves you. Devise a system whereby your kid communicates with you every day, or twice a day, to let you know that they are alive and well. This is not negotiable. It only takes one minute to send a text, and since they love you, they need to show you by doing this one small thing. There are no guarantees that your child will be perfectly safe on spring break, just as there are no guarantees that your child will be perfectly safe anytime. Some things are out of your hands. But if you have raised your kid to be a good person with self-respect and respect for others, have faith that your years of effort will prevail and that your kid will make good choices. We can’t keep our kids under our wing forever. Our job as parents is to raise good citizens who better the world by being in it. Eventually, we just have to let go and have faith that our love will guide them even when they aren’t with us.

Six ways to make a toddler’s bedtime easier CHICAGO — Toddlers. We love them. They are active, sweet and special, and they amaze us and melt our hearts on an hourly basis. But, wow, some of them love to test us and fight sleep. While there are many toddlers out there who go to sleep happily and you don’t hear from them until morning, there are many other toddlers who try to negotiate, stall or delay (like the best lawyer in town). There are many parents who are struggling with their toddler’s bedtime process, so certified child sleep consultant and founder of Sleep Baby Love, Susie Parker, shares some helpful information to create a solid bedtime process to help your toddlers go to bed and stay in bed. Tip No. 1: Teach your child what is expected: As parents we sometimes expect a lot from our children. So much, that we forget that a few short years ago, they were just a tiny little newborn. We have to realize as much as we would like for our kids to oblige everything we do and say, they are just young kids whose minds run a mile a minute. By understanding that going through a bedtime routine isn’t always fun, we can help make it easier and more fun by thinking about things from a

child’s perspective. Tip No. 2: Make your bedtime routine fun: Be careful not to rile your toddler up before bedtime, but do things that will help them enjoy the bedtime process. Try having fun throughout the bedtime process: • Sing silly songs while brushing teeth. • Have a race to get into pajamas. Tip No. 3: Eliminate the power struggle: You are the parent and you set the rules, and the time your toddler goes to sleep. But, giving options and picking your battles you eliminate a full on power struggle and will make your bedtime routine much more enjoyable (for both you). Provide options throughout the bedtime process to help empower your child: • Would you like to wear these pajamas or these? • Would you like to brush your teeth before or after bath? Tip No. 4: Set sleep rules: Does your toddler really know what it means to go to sleep? Ask them. It would be great to hear the different responses. Assuming your toddler is out of a crib and transitioned to a big bed, your child’s big room allows them a lot of freedom, and of course, some would choose to

play rather than go to sleep. If you are struggling on a nightly basis to get your child to sleep, get back to basics. Have a family meeting and explain the rules of sleep and how sleep works. “You lay in your bed, shut your eyes and go to sleep.” (Yes that simply) Explain in your child’s language the benefits of sleep and how it helps them grow big and strong. Tip No. 5: Offer rewards for following the sleep rules: Use a sticker chart to help reward your toddler for following the sleep rules. Have they stayed in their bed the whole night? Could they earn a shiny sticker? Get your child invested in the process by having them help make the chart (or pick out an online printable). Include them in shopping and picking out the stickers. Tip No. 6: Blame somebody else: “Going to sleep is not always your toddler’s favorite subject, and if your child is still resistant to the act of going to sleep, I give you permission from this point on to blame me, Sleep Susie,” said Susie Parker. Tell them that you have a friend that is going to help you follow your sleep rules. This will help you not look like the bad guy and hopefully your child wants to do what Sleep Susie says.

BCGS is a FamilySearch affiliate library PRINCETON — The Bureau County Genealogical Society is reminding the public that it is a FamilySearch affiliate library. The designation means library patrons will have greater and more convenient access to the wealth of genealogical resources available through FamilySearch. FamilySearch is the world’s largest repository of free genealogical records and manages the famous Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. It has amassed billions of birth, marriage, death, census, land, and court records of genealogical significance from over 130 countries. FamilySearch is extending access to its collections by circulating microfilms of the historic records through select public libraries. The Bureau County Genealogical Society is now one of those libraries. It is a priceless resource for local residents interested in discovering

their family trees. Since only a small portion (less than 5 percent) of the world’s genealogical records are online, researchers can easily access FamilySearch’s extensive collection by traveling no farther than the BCGS Library at 629 S. Main St. in Princeton. There is a nominal fee payable to FamilySearch to cover rental and mailing when ordering a microfilm. Patrons can search the Family History Library Catalog online at http:// to see what records are available. Orders must be placed from home using a credit card. Once the film arrives at BCGS, patrons will use the microfilm readers there to view it. Assistance will be available from the library’s staff. For more information, call the Bureau County Genealogical Society at 815-879-3133 or 815-3037386, or email questions to

Beach Boys tickets will go on sale June 7 PRINCETON — The Bureau County Fair will present The Beach Boys at 8 p.m. Aug. 21 at the Bureau County Fairgrounds. Tickets will go on sale June 7. Happily for us all, The Beach Boys continue to create and perform with the same bold imagination and style that marked their explosive debut over 50 years ago. And now in 2013, their Capitol Records release, “Sounds of Summer” (RIAA certified triple platinum with over three million in sales and climbing), and it’s companion “The Warmth of the Sun” marks a resurgence in Beach Boys interest that has again rocked the world. Even more than the Beatles, The Beach Boys found through their music the key to unfading youth — and they made copies for everyone. To these guys, the beach isn’t just a place where the surf comes to play — it’s where life is renewed and made whole again.
