Tips / Travel

Bringing children out into public can be a stressful activity, but when combined with the anxiety of airport security lines and tarmac delays, it can become unbearable. However, knowing a few tricks to ease your pain can go a long way.


Early Boarding

Make use of the early boarding call for passengers with children. Empty seats equate to places to put your belongings or your child while you load the overhead compartment.


Keep Them Occupied

Even when flights are short, children often become antsy. Your job is to distract them from all the ear popping and strange gravitational pulls. The best toys are those that will keep them distracted and glued in for a long time. Handheld electronics devices will often keep your child and all of the other passengers around you at ease. Also, give your child the window seat so they can get lost looking at the clouds.


Make Friends

If you are traveling without a significant other, you might want to find another parent nearby on the plane who can help you tag team your kid. If you have to use the bathroom, they can look after your child and vice versa.


Sometimes, TSA agents can help you gather your many bags and strollers after going through the security screening. Other times, flight attendants will help you load your carry-ons into the overhead compartment while you watch your child.
