Are Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise making plans to add to their brood?  “Maybe in a couple of years, but right now I want to make sure I’m really there for Suri,” says Holmes recently, according to Us Magazine.  While there are no immediate plans for expansion, Holmes is still young at 31, and plans to keep her baby options open for the future.

How can parents prevent an only child from being spoiled on the road?

Cupid’s Advice:

When a couple only has one child, all of their attention naturally focuses on him or her.  When you add traveling for work into the picture, it becomes easy to spoil the child.  Cupid has some ways to help keep that from happening:

1. Have a consistent schedule: No matter where you lay your head at night, keeping a regular schedule for your little one will help to give him or her a sense of normalcy.

2. Plan activities to share: You can treat your children and your spouse while traveling to experiences by taking in the sights in your free time.  This will cement the family bond and perhaps ignite a spark between parents.

3. Don’t give them everything they want: The most important way to keep from spoiling your only child is to refrain from giving them everything they want.  Explain to them why they can’t have what they are asking for, and don’t cave when they ask again.
