Driving tips with children

It´s a good idea to leave home just after lunch, to take a nap or after dinner. The purr of the car helps them sleep and for us is easier to drive relaxed.

I also recommend to prepare stories, paintings and some white paper for them to paint. Toys are a good idea and some unhealty but attractive food like chips or sweets will keep them busy.

If you hire a family car  is very usual they have DVD on the back for the children where they can waych tv series or pictures; however you can always take the laptop or a IPad with you so they can entertaint theirselves.

Another good habit is to stop the vehicle very often. Remember that children get tired much before you, making some stops to drink something is a good idea.
