Summer vacations with little ones can sometimes feel more like work than a true vacation. The planning, packing, stressing about sleep and everything in between can make something that’s meant to be fun…anything but that.
But it doesn’t have to be that way! There are a few things families can do to remove some of the stress from a family vacay.
Here are some of our favourite tips!
Chat with any adults or older kids that are joining you on vacation about what your expectations are for the trip. Talk about desired behaviour, obstacles you may encounter, and how to ensure the experience is memorable for everyone.
Travelling with young kids and babies is always going to be a bit of a shot in the dark - some days will be magic, while others might be more of a disaster. You just have to roll with it!
We hope these tips help you feel more confident and less stressed as you plan your summer vacation(s). And remember, you’ll cherish these family vacation memories for the rest of your life. And that’s what it’s all about, right?
