• Keeping a young child happy during a long flight

    2010-11-22

    Travelers who take long flights with children know how stressful it can be to keep a child under control in travel circumstances that are often taxing for even the most mature grown-ups. However, there are some steps that can be taken to ensure a relatively-stress free trip.

    Parents who regulate their children's TV time may be advised to suspend their limits for the duration of a long flight. If a plane has TV monitors, allowing a child to watch them may be the easiest and most stress-free way to keep him or her entertained.

    Packing a small bag for a child complete with dolls, cars, coloring books, stickers and other toys may also provide entertainment and keep the child calm during the journey.

    If the flight is long enough, putting one's child to sleep is especially important. Not only will it make the time pass faster for the child, but he or she will be well-rested and feel better once the family arrives to their final destination.

    Trying to maintain a normal bedtime rhythm may help putting a child to sleep. If the parent reads his child a bedtime story, bringing the storybook on board and reading from it may be helpful.
