Traveling With Two or More Children

It's time to take that long-delayed family vacation. Or maybe you're gearing up to tackle multiple errands, with your children in tow. Either way, it's not uncommon to feel a little overwhelmed, and wonder if it would just be easier to stay home and stay put.

Parents often think that once they've mastered arranging their lives to include a child that it can't be that much harder to add more children. But the logistics of outings and travel with more than one child can be challenging, to put it mildly. Careful planning in advance, a little luck, a lot of patience, and a bag full of tricks can make travel possible and even pleasurable. If you consider the trip an adventure, your children will also. If you can make the trips fun, children are less likely to resist the confinement.

Allowing plenty of time for your trip is a key element in reducing stress. If your errand would typically take one hour with one child, plan for at least two hours for the same outing with two or more children. And by all means, never turn down offers of help for your outings. Those extra hands can truly make things easier.

Keep in mind that taking family trips or running simple errands are opportunities for learning: learning about the places you will visit and learning important social lessons such as sharing, taking turns, and patience. These trips involve time together as a family and can create wonderful family memories.
