When traveling with children, children tend to take more time than adults. For example, when asked to go to the toilet, change clothes and other things. All these things usually have to be ordered many times which of course this will be very time consuming. In addition, children tend to find it difficult to ask them to hurry up and when forced upon them they will become cranky.

Especially if your child is no longer using diapers, then it is certain that you have to stop several times to serve the baby to defecate. For this reason, it is better if you schedule your trip by adding an extra 2.5-3 hours from the normal travel time to increase the amount of stopping time without making you late at your destination.
3. Applications On Gadgets For Children

Even when traveling by public transportation such as trains, planes and ships, games on gadgets can make your kids busier with their toys so that time will not run slowly and the risk of your children experiencing stress during the trip is smaller.
4. Vacationing While Studying
Every moment of the trip can actually be used as a fun learning medium. For example, introducing the provincial, district and sub-district capitals of an area. Or show unique things that you encounter on the road, such as the names of buildings or monuments that you meet there. In essence, make your trip as interesting and fun as possible so that children feel excited for the next holidays.
