“Travel opens your mind as few other things do!” – Libba Bray Travelling with kids is often a debatable topic among new parents. When it comes to travelling questions like the right age of kid to start travelling, things to be packed and most importantly whether travel will bring any difference to kids often surface. So here we list down 8 benefits of travelling with kids:
#1. Richer Experiences For Better Development
Travelling is one of the best ways parents can give their kids an array of exposure. The way they look, conduct & behave in a foreign environment is a great learning for them. Simply because travelling to a new city or a new country gives kids a new set of cultural & social norms to learn.
#2. Childhood Travelling Experiences Result in Modest Adult!
Kids when travel in their formative years helps them in understanding the vastness of the world. They realise that the world is much bigger well beyond their own place of dwelling and beyond their parents’ high-value bank accounts.
#3. Habitual Traveller Kids = A-grades in Geography & History Subjects!
Oh yes, if you are a contemplating if travelling is actually any good for kids then trust us when we say it is. Clearly, kids learn more about the places that they travel than they learn with merely reading about the same. Even the chances of remembering their location on the world map, different rivers/seas, capital cities, their historical background is more when the kids are travel. Similarly, in terms of knowledge of languages, flora and fauna as well as travelling helps kids very much.
#4. More Conscious of World Environment & come close to Nature
Travelling to beaches, cities or to hilly destination kids are subject to different levels of climatic conditions and different kinds of pollutions. This results in kids becoming conscious of the changing world environment. When a trip is planned to a place near to nature, kids explore the location from their own
#5. Travelling with Kids is a Great way of Bonding as a Family
A family that travels together, bonds together. In fact, travelling is not just a relaxing therapy but the family time in a place away from home gives all members of the family to spend quality time together resulting in a more loving and united family.
#6. Travelling makes Kids more Outgoing!
While on the go, kids are subject to meeting new people and new kids. For example, kids tend to meet other cross- country kids at a play area of any airport or several other places like a hotel lobby. Generally kids especially toddlers don’t have many inhibitions and so when they initiate conversations with other kids it further helps in making them outgoing!
#7. Traveller Kids are More Adaptive and Flexible
Travelling as a family to newer destinations can present different weather conditions, stay conditions, transportation situations and more. Coping with such conditions make kids more flexible and adaptive in nature for future life.
#8. Travelling keeps Children away from the Digital World
Nowadays kids tend to be glued to their smartphones or laptops. Travelling to new places is a positive change for them. Without much efforts of parents, kids get distanced from the digital world and also reduce screen time.
