Travelling with your children might very well be one of the biggest challenges you will ever face. Sure, you’ve planned the perfect family holiday, but how do you travel successfully in the car or aeroplane with them? Children can lose interest while travelling quite easily, so it is your job to keep them entertained.
However, entertainment isn’t the only thing you need to keep in mind when taking your kids on a holiday. As a parent, you also need to keep your babies safe. Here are a few tips and tricks to travelling successfully with the kids:
• If you are travelling to your holiday destination by air, make sure that your child is securely buckled into the seat. And, if the oxygen mask drops, always put your own mask on first. Instinct might be to take care of your kid first, but you won’t be much help if you are unconscious.
• If your child is old enough, feel free to explain expectations of behaviour before the flight or car ride.
• Travelling in the car or on the plane is not the time to teach your child a lesson. This is especially true during air travel – your seatmates don’t want to hear your kid crying the whole time.
• Do your best to keep the kids entertained. Take a small backpack filled with their favourite games, toys, and snacks. Books and fims go a long way in the back of a car or on the plane.
