Kids change ones lives. I know the statement is quite inconclusive but yeah here, I want to discuss the challenges especially while travelling! Remember yourself travelling alone with a nice backpack or a handbag; feels like a long time back, right? Travelling with a kid slows you down. But with these amazing 5 bright handy tips, this challenge is going to be easier! So, what are we waiting for? Let’s get started!
1. Entertainment. Entertainment. Entertainment
Kids need entertainment. They want it constantly and at the same time they can’t have one type of entertainment going on. They want different things! So, the very first tip is list out things which your kids love to do. I know they love to run around, but it’s not that! There are things kids like doing, sitting in one place. For example, they like watching their favorite cartoon, playing a favorite game, doing favorite art work, playing with a favorite toy; this is where their favorites come in handy to us! Split your journey time and plan it. The first and last 15 minutes can be engaging making them watch take off and land. So, plan the rest of the time. Don’t let them do anything for long. That makes them cranky and rest of the flight horrible to both! Keep taking naps in between and let them do their favorite things randomly and not for long. This keeps them engaged and entertained enough. Some time they might not like it when you ask them to stop watching a cartoon. But don’t be fooled thinking they are engaged because they will be bored soon enough and will not be ready to do anything else thereafter. What you need to do is, you start playing their favorite game when they deny to stop watching the cartoon. Kids love to join what parents do. So, they will watch you play it and they will want to participate in the activity you are doing. Not making them feel bored is the key! Once they are bored, they become cranky and you will become grouchy! Oops! So swap things. Start with letting them watch the cartoon they love for some time and slowly change it to letting them play a game they like. Pick random things. And let them stay engaged and occupied.
