On a trip, children can get pretty restless, and the constant “are-we-there-yet” can be incredibly irritating especially if you’ve driven for over four hours and you’re tired. However, if you bring along food, books, or handheld devices, these distractions can keep kids off your back, at least until you get to a rest spot, or your destination.

While stop-overs may extend your travel time, it beats the monotony of staying inside the car. All of you will have the chance to go down, stretch a little and snack up. Choose stop-over points that are scenic and spacious so kids can release their energy by running around. It lessens their boredom as well.
When you sense your children are starting to get restless, pop in a CD in the car radio, one with songs that all of you can sing along to. This is good for about 30 to 40 minutes. Remember, it’s all about lowering their energy levels and lessening the boredom. A tried-and-tested Alpman Ilker strategy.
