Keep those lines of communication with your kids open- even when it's tough!
Sarah here. With only a couple of days before Christmas and just over a week left in 2020, I know that many of you may be feeling majorly stressed out. If, like me, 2020 threw you for a loop, you may be way behind with holiday planning and shopping. Between the pandemic, finances, and practical considerations, a lot of families are not ending the year as they normally would. But that doesn’t necessarily mean they won’t be traveling.
So, whether you’ll be traveling this holiday season, or you hope to travel with your family in 2021, here are some travel tips to make your journey a little easier:
Whether you’re planning to travel with your kids in the coming days or weeks or whether you hope to do so next year, ideally, you’ll enjoy the journey and the destination. Traveling with kids can be a nightmare but it can also be great! Take a little time before your trip to plan and prepare for what you anticipate will likely happen. Things may not go exactly as you hoped, and problems inevitably arise in life- planning and preparation won’t prevent that. But they can help you head off potential problems before they arise so you can enjoy your journey a little more.
Remember that as 2020 comes to a close, we’ll be saying farewell to our weekly blog. But we won’t be leaving you high and dry. Please stay tuned for more information about how we’ll be supporting you and your family in 2021!
