All those who have kids and have travelled with them know how difficult it is to go on long road trips with a toddler sitting in the back. There would be temper tantrums, total meltdowns, sibling fights and persistent crankiness. However, you might have noticed that your 2 year old is much calmer these days in long drives. This is because kids this age have longer attention span and can keep themselves occupied with toys and interesting things outside the window. With some help from you, your child can now keep his mind occupied and will not be as bored as before.
What you need to do
To make sure that your road trips with your little toddler are not complete nightmares; you will have to plan in advance. Make sure to carry enough toys and fun activity things to keep your kid occupied most of the time. Also carry along some nursery rhyme CDs that you can play and sing along with your kid.
Think of ideas to keep your kid occupied and be prepared to start a game as soon as your kid starts getting bored and cranky.
