Tips for travelling.

Older children might be capable of dealing with 10+ hours in the family van but If your family car is better suited to in-town trips rather than long hauls. Before you hit the road, be honest with yourself about what you and your children can handle in the way of a road trip. Generally speaking, young children should not be subjected to confinement in a car for more than six hours a day.
