Make sure you have enough games or other entertainment to distract the kids for the duration of your travels, whether that be in the car or on a plane. I’ve had success by asking my children what they’d like for the flight. Allowing them to choose on their own gives them a sense of responsibility and, in my experience, keeps them happier than if mom brought the wrong snacks – heaven forbid. Ha! At home, I prefer to monitor their screen time, but I say let the kids do what they want as long as they’re entertained and behaving well while traveling. After all, this is a vacation for you and them, so don’t stress about it too much. Sit back, relax, and get lost in that new book or podcast.
