How to Travel with a Kid Who’d Rather Stay Home


My girlfriend messaged me and said, ‘Michelle, why don’t you use video clips on your Instagram story of your other kids, instead of the one who wants to go home?’

I laughed and replied,’Well, that’s my real life!’

I have three kids. Two of whom LOVE to travel like their Momma and one who isn’t keen on change. He does enjoy it and he does have fun but it’s more work for him. As he’s gotten older he’s able to communicate his fears and concerns a bit more which makes managing it a lot easier.

We recently visited Punta Cana for a fun family vacation. I figured if I have a kid who struggles with change (and travel) then someone else probably does too, so I wanted to share what works for us in helping to make travel more enjoyable for him and for us.
