This article has a lot of good information. I especially liked the last one about what to do if you lose your child. There are some really helpful hints at the end such as taking a picture of your child on your phone as you start off your day at a theme park or wherever so that you'll know exactly what their are wearing.

What if you want to lose your kid? :wave:
We always took pictures of the kids before we left for a the parks at WDW. We also made them carry a whistle and told them to blow it if they got lost. Its easier to hear over the 4 million kids calling "mommy, daddy"" Now they have cell phones, we just call them if "We" get lost.
