Kids are not too keen on attending family functions, since most get-togethers require them to: (a) stay glued to their seats (thus making them appear like good, polite little children), (b) receive unwanted smooches from ancient, distant relatives (a.k.a. virtual strangers whose names they hadn't heard of until now), (c) be forced to bond with random people of various ages they hardly know, or (d) endure all or a combination of the above horrors.

If you've noticed your kid making faces when you announce your next party, it's time to whip out some fun reinforcements. Check out these tips on making sure your kids enjoy a family reunion just as much as you do.
