WATCH Morrison's cashier who went viral for helping blind autistic girl stars

Lin Lisle-Fenwick, 53, made headlines earlier in the year for helping a blind and autistic child scan some shopping. Holly Wilkins, 11, had suffered a '"meltdown" at the checkout and Lin stepped in to calm her. She played "shops" with anxious Holly to keep her relaxed and focused. News of the touching moment went viral and, as a result, Morrisons made Lin the face of a new instructional video for parents.Here are Lin's top tips for shopping with your children: Be prepared“Let the children know where they are going so it is not a shock to them when they find themselves in the supermarket as opposed to the toy shop.”Get them involved“Give the children a job to do – holding the shopping list or helping to find items.”Avoid the sweet aisle“If you’re not buying sweets that day, then my advice is to avoid that aisle.”Speak to the food makers “Lots of children are fascinated by food and it’s good for them to know where things come from so get them talking to the butchers, bakers and fishmongers – they all like talking about what they do and they are a wealth of knowledge.”Let them help with packing“They can sort things for you to make it easier to unpack when you get home.”
