It’s the time of the year where parents should travel with children n here are a few points to remember.

Many parents proudly tell me that their children decide the destination- how can this be ? They can share they want a beach or a hill holiday or such similar choices; but the planning should be by the adults, considering their budgets etc.

The actual holiday / travel packing should be made a part of the exercise for the child to participate- asking her / him to take an active role in the process.

Once the trip is on, it should be a good plan for the parents to teach the general etiquette of travel – consideration for the fellow passengers on train , bus or plane, not to linger away from the adults accompanying them and such general instructions.

While on the holiday itself , let the child run around n enjoy the surroundings n not be sitting in an A/c room in front of the TV set!
