Traveling is fun but when you have to travel with kids, your views towards both traveling and kids may change after just one experience. There is no denying the fact that kids can totally ruin your whole journey and there is a chance that you may not be the only one who would have to suffer. It can be a torture for your fellow passengers too. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying it’s wrong to travel with kids or kids are evil but they can be hard to handle.
So, if you have decided to travel with your kids, don’t be scared, you can handle this. All you have to do is take care of a few things beforehand. These will prepare you appropriately for every possible hassle and situation.
Prepare Your Kids Mentally
You will have to start preparing your kids for what they are going to experience. This will make it easier for them and you to adjust. This may be their first ever experience and having least to no clue about what they are about to face can be overwhelming for them. Tell them stories, help them imagine, or show them videos.
Travel Early Morning
Early morning flights are usually less crowded and people are prepared to sleep. Traveling with your kids at this hour would make them feel tired and sleepy as well. With more space available, less crowd, you can easily let your kids sleep, while you relax for a while as well. You can smoke a cannabis cartridge prior to your flight and this will help you calm down and relax.
You will need a bunch of items that you may require just in case, consider packing them. Snacks for your toddlers and water are essentials as one can always expect a situation where the plane may be out of food or the flight is delayed. However, while packing the essentials don’t go overboard. You will have to realize that you are going to carry all these bags and your kids if required so pack appropriately and wisely considering the possible situations and conditions that may arise.
Choose a Seat Thoughtfully
Window seats are everyone’s favorite but will that be the right choice when you are with a kid? You may have to rush to the washroom of potty emergencies or your kid may feel sick during the take off or landing, after all it is their first time. Choose a seat that is near the washroom and comfortable enough for you to adjust with a kid. You will require more leg space and a relatively quiet place so that your kids can sleep without disturbance. Talk to the attendant and let them know about your situation, they will surely help you out.
Keep the Situation Under Control
We understand it must be overwhelming for you to handle these excited, lively kids but please take care of them every second you are traveling. Them leaving your sight may not only affect other passengers’ experience, but can certainly attract irreversible consequences. It is not safe for your kids to roam around in the aisle touching everything they see. Moreover, they may contribute to the difficulties of attendants.
