According to a new study, if you take your children on holidays various on a regular basis, they will have more success at school.

A new survey conducted by teachers in America shows that 74% of the teachers believe that traveling has a good impact on the students education.

Some of the many qualities that students whom travel can develop include, respectfulness, tolerance and a wider interest in trying new things. All thanks to their traveling experiences which opens their minds.

Teachers believe that traveling can help students not only inside the class but also playing outdoors too. Children that have traveling experiences can be more independent and also develop a higher self-esteem compared to other children that do not travel.

The students that travel on a regular basis are believed to be more able to adapt to new situations and have more confidence playing with other peers.

The more surprising fact about this survey is that a 42% of teachers believe that College and University admissions are more likely to be granted to those students who are more used to travel as they are more likely to have success at school.

The best thing above all is that it doesn’t really matter the destination, there is no need to travel overseas or to a different exotic land, the survey shows that even local traveling to nearby provinces or cities with a bit of a difference to what the student is used to can have a great impact on the student’s success at school.

The only challenge about this interesting facts is that, apparently the more you take your children on vacation, the more they will be interested in repeating the experience. Therefore, if you start traveling with your children, showing them new things, new places and different cultures it is creating within them an interest in traveling. This will then help them develop a crave for traveling which will make them want to do more and more trips.

10 tips to travel with children

1- As for the choice of destiny, I believe that the upbringing is happy where the parents will be! With rare exceptions, most of the destinations are “kids friendly”, mainly those on the beach, but be prepared to make a trip by adapting to the limitations of the little ones. Be flexible, knowing that predictability is very important for them and tracing security.

2- If you can choose, always choose directly flights. The fewer connections, the less tired the children are and the less chance of losing a fight or spend hours outside the airport. If it is unavoidable, I recommend making the purchase of all the connected sections, this way to be responsible for possible delays and reallocations in new ones, the responsibility is the airline and so you avoid stress.

3- Choose night flights if is possible. As children arrive less tired and is difficult to entertain them for so many hours with no space in the plane.

4- Take some toys, books and comics or drawing books, that can keep the busy.

5- If a uninterrupted crying occurs, don’t despair. Normally, the urgency in calm them down make it more difficult and you have to deal with the judgment from other passengers. Keep calm and remember that most of the people have gone through something similar and understand perfectly!

6- Always have some fruit and practical snacks (I always have bananas and powdered biscuits in a bag). They’ve saved me in several situations.

7- Always take a larger amount than you believe is necessary, both milk, diapers and extra clothes. You never know if the flight will be delayed, if the bags will be lost… a cautious mother is worth two! I once took a flight that should have taken an hour and a half and ended up taking a 12-hour trip with the kids. Result: lack of milk, food and diapers. I passed the biggest squeeze and the lesson stayed.

8- In terms of food, after the food introduction, if you can stay in a place with easy access to the kitchen, it’s wonderful, but as we know that it won’t always be possible, it’s worth making sure that the hotel offers some less spicy options and with little salt.

9- Very important: I recommend asking the pediatrician for a list of essential medicines for each situation in an eventual emergency, especially abroad.

10- Let go of the rules, be flexible, face everything with lightness and good humor! In the end, our frustration with the unforeseen always comes from the expectations we create that everything will go according to our plans. One of the greatest teachings of motherhood is that not everything will always go according to plan and even so, the experience will be much better than we imagined and will yield good laughs. Travel is the perfect opportunity to create eternal affective memories!
