That dreaded week is coming soon: March Break. Unless one has the financial wherewithal to hie the entire family to someplace very warm, one can expect a little boredom in the child who is accustomed to having their day planned from beginning to end.
Fret not: there are ways around this.
We highly recommend stopping by Mississauga Central Library between March 14th and March 21st (closer to the 14th if you want to retain your sanity) and picking up a stack of Preventative Measures.
For five dollars, you, too, can guarantee yourself a good two hours of peace and quiet every single day of the break!
Bring your reusable bag and stuff it with an assortment of novels, graphic novels, non-fiction and magazines. Whenever a mouth opens with the threat of potential whinging, hand over the bag.
Problem solved. Make yourself a latte.
P.S. There are also DVDs available. No, it does not make you a bad caregiver.
