Ahh…Spring Break! It’s a wonderful respite from the normal routine; a time to relax and enjoy fun activities with the family. Many of you will travel during this time, which can add another layer stress for mom and dad…but it can be a first day of the vacation adventure with a little bit of planning.
First, whenever possible, plan your travel times with your kids’ schedules in mind. If your little ones just do not rise and shine at 5:00 am, try not to book the first flight out; instead look into a late morning or mid-afternoon option. Likewise, if they are on an early-to- bed schedule, avoid that late night departure if possible.
