I came across this video on youtube that shows a few ways to help get your kids to stop crying during the airplane take-off and landing; and have ear problems.
It worked for my daughter (the method with jaw wriggling) on a recent trip. So, thought I'd share with everyone here too.
Saved me the embarassment of a crying kid on board the plane!
