It’s irritating when you see your children fighting with each other while you travel. You want to stop them from doing it, but they’re difficult to discipline. You even feel humiliated, especially when you’re in public places and people start to stare at you. These are the things to do to prevent it from happening.
Set rules starting at home
You can’t take your children on a trip and only tell them the night before you leave what to do. You have to practice these rules at home so that wherever you go your children will do the right thing. If you look at them in the eyes or tell them to stop, they will do it right away.
Bring their toys and books
Children need to be busy while travelling. You want them to have something to do so they won’t bother you. They won’t cause a scene either. Usually, they will only make a loud noise if they feel bored or uncomfortable. Long trips can make them feel that way, so you need to give them something to keep them busy. It’s also imperative that you play with them and provide them with attention. Each child needs to have something to play with, so they won’t fight for the same toy.
Establish a good relationship at home
When your children keep fighting with each other at home, you can expect them to do the same while travelling. However, if they love each other, they will be that way wherever they go. They might have some disagreements, but they will still manage their differences.
Never show that you have a favourite
Let’s face it, you have a child that you prefer more than the others. It doesn’t mean you love the others less. Also, if you have a preference, you need to keep it to yourself. Don’t show it to everyone. Stop buying more things for that favourite child or showing more attention. The others will feel jealous, and it could be a reason for rivalry. Your children might not say it to you, but they will feel it if you prefer someone more than the others.
Look for a quiet place
If you want to travel, but you can’t control them, the best thing to do is to find large houses for rent. You can stay inside the house throughout the trip. It will still be fun and relaxing. You can also control your children quickly. The house has several facilities for everyone to use. They won’t fight over anything since they can do whatever they want. You might have a child who would like spending time in the entertainment room while the other prefers swimming in the indoor pool. There are so many things to do, and fighting isn’t one of them.
Hopefully, you can control your children’s behaviour, so your trip won’t be a disappointment.
