Making Travel Plans with Children

When making travel plans for children, there are a few important considerations to keep
in mind:

  • Safety: Safety should always be the top priority when planning a trip with children. This includes choosing a destination that is safe, selecting child-friendly accommodations, and ensuring that children are always supervised.
  • Age-appropriate activities: It’s important to choose activities and attractions that are appropriate for your children’s ages and interests. For example, young children may enjoy spending time at a children’s museum or playground, while older children may be interested in hiking or other outdoor activities.
  • Travel logistics: Traveling with children can be challenging, so it’s important to plan for any potential issues ahead of time. This includes packing enough snacks, water, and entertainment for the journey, and making sure that children have any necessary medications or other supplies.
  • Budget: Traveling with children can be expensive, so it’s important to consider the cost of the trip when making plans. Look for budget-friendly options such as family-friendly accommodations, free activities, and discounted tickets.
  • Flexibility: Finally, it’s important to be flexible when traveling with children. Things may not go as planned, and children may need breaks or rest periods. Being flexible and adaptable will help ensure that everyone has an enjoyable trip.

About the Author: Yvonne Wonder

As the founder and managing director of Destination Sitters, LLC, a national hotel and event babysitting service, and the mother of two children, I strongly believe that family comes first. I personally needed babysitting when I moved to San Diego 14 years ago. Like most parents, I assumed there were standards for temporary babysitting; in reality, there are no state standards or licensing requirements for temporary babysitting. The idea for Destination Sitters was born! I wanted to Give Parents Peace of Mind® when traveling with their children, so I created strict screening requirements for the sitters we refer. There is nothing like the peace of mind that comes from getting great professional help to care for your children, especially when traveling away from home. I and my partners, along with our office staff, have that one goal in mind with everything we do. Through the years of working with children, I have been inspired to write three books, and this blog for parents’ and children’s wellbeing. I believe the best way to teach a child is leading by example, with love, honesty, integrity, compassion, perseverance, and personal responsibility. Learning these values and teaching children that all women and men are equal will encourage them to dream big to be anything they want to be! An entrepreneur for over 35 years, I previously spent years running a construction and design company with two offices in California and built million-dollar estates and remodeled existing ones. For three and half years, I was one of the primary designers on HGTV’s Curb Appeal. I have also been published in books, magazines and newspapers, and have been a featured designer in multiple showcase houses.
