How to Keep Travelling with Kids as Stress Free as Possible

Aug 27 2019

Travelling is stressful. How stressful depends on the nature of the journey and your frame of mind.  Taking children on a journey can be a recipe for increased levels of stress, but it doesn’t have to be that way.  Travelling with children can also be an opportunity for fun, for new experiences and for learning. 

Children pick up on your mood very quickly, if you are anxious and short tempered even before the journey has begun, you can’t expect children to be calm and well behaved. Travel with children needs forethought but remember, though you may be dreading the journey, your children probably won’t have any preconceptions about the experience, so be positive and they will be too.
