4 Tips for Traveling with Kids

Liza Garcia, author of Never Drink Coffee During a Business Meeting, discussed her book which gives advice to people both entering corporate America as well as providing tips to people looking to advance their current career. 
 
As an employer for over 20 years, the mentoring of her employees has translated into the deliberate parenting of her children. Today she focused on four things to keep in mind when traveling with kids of any age. 
 
1. Pack something new
  • Throughout the weeks prior to your travel look for new items such as games, toys, books that you can save away for your first day of travel.
  • Download Ebooks or buy new books your children have been dying to read.
    • Tip: Wrap them as presents
2. Find new food or drink mixes
  • Pack food items, or make delicious food or mix up “dry” smoothies to take on the plane that they haven’t tried yet or take their most coveted snacks to ease a long flights.
3. Find a new educational app or game that promotes a new developmental skill or ability
  • Research age appropriate documentation and focus the app or physical game on this skill to engage with your children and “test” their abilities!
4. Research your destination and the stops on the way prior to your trip with your children
  • Save websites, articles, books, and begin a travel log/ journal/ blog or even a travel book. 
 
One Last Tip: Make sure you take advantage of early check in or even family check in, to make sure once you get on the plane, you get the kiddies settled and get all items secure in their place for easy access.
