TIPS ON HOW TO ENJOY TRAVELING WITH KIDS
Thinking twice on bringing your kids along when you travel?
Traveling with children need not be stressful. Here are few tips
on how you can enjoy your trip with less trouble and more fun.
*Plan with your kids Get the opinion of your kids, this way they
can get involved and get excited about it. Children have limited
attention span and can easily get tired. Choose simple but fun
*Things to bring Bring along disposable stuff like diapers
instead of cloth. You can rent out strollers or pram which is
more convenient than bringing along bulky equipments. Remember
to pack any medication your children need and a first- aid kit.
If with an infant, bring sterilizing equipment for bottle-
*Keep them busy Make the trip enjoyable for the kids by bringing
along their favorite toys. Do not allow them to read on the
road, this may add to motion sickness and constrain the eyes.
*Be safe on the road When in a car, be sure that seatbelts are
securely in place. Remove unnecessary things on top of the car
ledge, they might fall over and hit your kids when you suddenly
step on the break. If traveling in a public vehicle, keep your
children on your lap or beside you. Crawling or walking around
might cause them to fall.
*Avoid motion sickness Most children complain of being dizzy and
traveling, usually on a ship or a boat. If on the
road, you can prevent this by planning several stopovers. Open
you car windows to let in some fresh air. Before the trip, be
sure that your children took a snack. You can also check with
your doctor for appropriate anti-nausea medicines.
*Prevent travelers' diarrhea You can avoid child dehydration by
bringing plenty of distilled water. Stay away from street foods.
Also avoid raw fruits and vegetables, sea foods and rare-cooked
*Pack your kids' favorite food Children can be choosy when it
comes to food. Adults may want to try out the local delicacies
but kids prefer to eat something they are familiar with. Most
specialty restaurants might add a kid's meal to their menu; you
can check it out before dining in. Overall, the most important
tip is: be patient. Sure, you will have some bad moments, but
traveling with kids can be a lot of fun if you'll take the time
to understand them. It's always nice to see your kids happy and
smiling brightly, of course, you should too!
