Keeping kids safe during holiday travel

630x355 (7)

I’m kind of just accepting that life is going to be a little crazy this week. We’re not quite out of celebrating mode, and I’m trying to balance the things I need to do for work with the fun.. I’m hoping to do better today.

I’m an aunt, and I love those six little people. And as their aunt, I do not want anything to happen to them. I’d imagine being a parent mean that you want to keep your children safe is one of the most important things in your life. But how exactly do you exactly do that while traveling? That is what we are going to look at today.

  • You need to remember that vacations are going to get you out of your routine, just accept that fact. With this being the case, you will want to be careful to put any medications away so that little fingers will not be able to reach them. If you are going to visit friends or relatives, you should ask them to do the same. Of course, this does not just apply to medication, but any cleaners or anything that children do not need to play with.
  • Especially in this day and age, you will want to have a serious talk with the people you are visiting about their weapons. How many times have we heard the story like… “The kids were playing in the back room, and they got interested in the guns. And before anyone knew t, a little one was shot.” It’s a tragedy no one wants to happen to them. And in this case, it is way better to be safe than sorry.
  • Traveling by car may be the simplest thing to do when it comes to traveling with little ones, but what should you do about carseats if you are traveling overseas? A lot of airline and car rental places are going to have carseats available to you. Sometimes all you have to do is ask. Other times there may be a small fee.

I would love to hear your thoughts on these things.
