How to Deal with Kids and Teenagers during a Trip

A lot of people look forward to going on trips with the entire family. It’s a great way to spend time and bond with each other without the distractions of work, school, and other people. Of course, there are also challenges when traveling as a group, especially if your children are still very young or are teenagers. You’ll have to deal with a lot of baggage, keep everyone in line so no one gets lost, and make sure the kids don’t start fighting with each other and being a nuisance.

There are ways for you to deal with your kids when you go for a family trip.

The key is to keep everyone in a good mood. Since young kids are often easily bored and restless, you need to bring things that will keep them occupied at least until you arrive at your destination.

Toys and Gadgets

Let your kids bring along their e-readers, tablets, MP3 players, and smartphones. They can play the games stored in these gadgets, read books, watch movies, or simply listen to music while you travel. Who knows, you might even enjoy playing games and watching movies with them. These toys and gadgets will also give them something to get busy with if ever they get bored during long hours in your hotel room.

Don’t allow them to bring board games with plenty of pieces though because that would just be a hassle.


We’re talking about kids and teens here, so you’d really need to stock up on munchies and drinks. They don’t have to be junk food; you can bake a batch of cookies for the trip and make sandwiches. Prepare dry finger foods or individually wrapped snacks that everyone in the family can just grab anytime they feel hungry. For the drinks, if it’s possible to carry bottles of water then each family member can bring their own.

Preparing food for your family will also come in handy if someone doesn’t like the food served at the place where you’re staying, and if there’s no fast food joint or restaurant nearby.

Let Everyone Take Naps

Some families intentionally travel at night so that the kids can sleep through most of the trip. The only possible problem here is if they’re the type who gets cranky when they wake up. If your family’s traveling in the day, make sure everyone is well-rested before the trip so that everyone will stay alert, especially if you have connecting flights or another train to catch. When you’re already at your destination, make sure you also get enough rest after a day of touring and sightseeing.

Have an Itinerary

Prepare an itinerary for your trip and share it with your kids. They also need to make their own preparations, especially teenagers. Most of them don’t like it when they’re caught unaware and unprepared for an outing. Surprises are wonderful, of course, but just to be on the safe side, tell them what they can expect to see and do at wherever it is you’re going. Otherwise, you might be dealing with complaints all day.

It also helps to talk to your kids before your trip and tell them that it’s important for them to be on their best behavior. Let them know how much you look forward to spending time with them, and that the entire family’s going to have so much fun!
