Although the name “life hack” contains the dubious word “hack,” life hacks are genuinely helpful in nature and don’t require any type of actual technology hacking to function. Life hacks are useful and feasible by almost anybody, including children, because they save time, free up (or even create) space, need little effort and the simplest of materials to function, and are easy to use.
Children learn more quickly from first-hand experience of life hacks when they are properly supervised by parents. “Involving your child in mind-stimulating activities, as well as providing support to meet his optimal needs, results in more positive outcomes, including greater school success, healthier behavior, and improved family relationships,” according to Dr. Robert Lehman of the Pediatric Affiliates of Hampton Roads.

Constantly Have a Trash Bag on Hand.
To use as impromptu raincoats for you and your luggage during an unexpected downpour, don’t forget to include any extra waste bags in your luggage. When they are coming home from school in the rain without an umbrella, this will keep your kids dry as well.
