Thanksgiving often brings travel, and traveling with little kids is no easy matter. Traveling on planes with young children can be stressful, even for the most experienced of parents. The many check points, people and regulations make airline travel difficult for everyone, especially children. These pressures also make it harder to give children what they need to be better passengers, especially on long flights. By being aware of what your child is likely to be most anxious about, you will be able to better prepare and, if necessary, distract your child so that you and your child can have a more relaxing flight.
