Spring and Summer Vacation: Traveling with Children

It’s that time of year again, and many families are planning vacations or visits to grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins or family friends. It may feel like a vacation to children, but parents often complain that it feels more like a relocation than an actual holiday break. Overstimulated children out of their regular routines can be difficult. Different rules and expectations of your hosts can be even more challenging to parents who are trying to keep everything under control.

Try your best to maintain family rules while on vacation and always teach children to be respectful of your host. Realistically you might not be as successful as you would like. It’s important to remember that the holidays and holiday visits are time-limited. All too soon, you will be back home and involved in familiar routines. If your expectations for your children’s behavior return home with you, things will be back to “your family normal” before the holiday trip.
