  8. Book travel to coincide with your child’s bed or nap time. That way, they’ll sleep through the plane, train, or bus ride and you can relax… maybe even get some sleep yourself!
     
  9. Put your kids in charge of their own “activity back pack” for their games, toys, and activities. They rule is, they can bring it but they have to carry it on their own.
