If you’ve ever taken your kids on a big trip with you, you’ve probably had at least one family member or friend look at you in shock and ask “WHY WOULD YOU TRAVEL WITH YOUR KIDS?!?”
For travelers, it seems obvious. Of course we’d travel with the kids. It’s wonderful way for them to grow and us to bond together as a family, kids are great travelers and there’s NOTHING like seeing the world as a family.
I reached out on our Facebook page and twitter to see why YOU travel with your kids, and we got some great responses. Here are some great reasons to travel with your kids!
Traveling with our son is a great way to give him the interactive education as homeschoolers. We don’t just show him pictures in a book, we let him visit places like Yellowstone National Park, The Grand Canyon, and even Civil War battlefields so he can understand exactly what he is learning about in class. – Katie Hale from You Brew My Tea
My husband does a lot of traveling for his job, so if we did not go with him on some of his trips we would miss out on valuable family time. – Sarah Nichols from Simple Life Abundant
We’re travelers by nature, and decided before having kids that we’d continue our global exploration, as a family. It makes revisiting familiar places a new adventure, because now we’re seeing it though the kids’ eyes. It builds us as a family, and as a couple. – Lavende Capelle
opening their eyes to new experiences and spending quality time as a family – @tinboxtraveler
It’s hard to be prejudiced about any people group when you’ve gone and visited so many and seen new cultures, and learned to embrace the beauty in our differences and that’s how I want my kids to be raised. – @travelfamblog
