Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club understands that the memories adults have about traveling with kids are not always pleasant. The words “Are we there yet?” are some of the most dreaded words that parents can hear. It means that a child is bored and it can be difficult to enjoy a trip when a child is not happy. Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club knows that the solution to this is having a plan to keep the kids interested in the trip they are taking.
- Set a child’s expectations – Make sure the child knows how long a trip is going to take and how long they will be in certain locations such as an airport. If you do this, it will give the child something to look forward to. The amount of information you can give a child depends on the age of the child.
- Have plenty of activities – When you plan for things to do, be realistic about how long the child will do them for. You should not expect them to read books for five or six hours. Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club recommends that the attention span of the child should be taken into consideration when planning activities.
- Keep trips shorter – It may be better to take an extra day to get somewhere than it would be to trap a child in a car or airport all day. Children do not have the patience that an adult does.
