Remember those summer road trips you took with your family as a kid? Me too. I can’t remember anywhere we went or a single thing we did. All I remember is that I was the youngest, which meant I got stuck with the worst spot in the car– in the back between my brother and sister. “The hump,” as we called it, was not an actual seat. It was the hard, elevated spot between two bucket seats which I’m sure did wonders for my back. It didn’t matter. I was a kid and I loved it.
The point is, despite any stress that might be associated with road trips, they can be a great family experience. And as parent, know that your kids will remember them as happy times.
