Traveling with kids during the holidays

CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee (WDEF)- We are entering the heart of holiday season with thanksgiving less than a week away.

Teacher and child expert Suzanne Barchers said traveling with a child can make the holiday season even more stressful but there are several ways to help make it a more enjoyable experience.

“Holidays are stressful enough and when you throw in a trip particularly for toddlers or preschoolers who haven’t traveled for the last few years I like to think of three or four p’s.  Preparing, having the children participate, plan for the unexpected, and then pack. A new app that they have an experience before because that can be handled so easily and there’s no hassle with it. I know parents are concerned about Screen Time but I think this is one time that you bend the rules and go towards sanity and convenience,” said Barchers.
