Anticipate the unexpected.

ALWAYS set up contingency plans just in case.


~ If one of us is delayed, we'll send a text message notifying the others.

~ If we get split up at the mall, here's the time and place we'll meet.

~ If you get locked out of the house, get the spare key from (the neighbor, the hiding place...).

~ In case of emergency or disaster, the family will meet at (designated place).

~ If I cannot be reached, here is my emergency contact:

~ Keep a change of clothes, a large towel and water in the car trunk.

~ Store emergency contact person in everyone's cell phone under "911."

~ Keep a collar with i.d. tag and phone number on pets.

Pre-planning for challenging times provides a sense of comfort and control, and reduces stress, worry and panic. With a little organization, you will be better equipped to deal with the demands of the moment.
