The Benefits of Traveling with Children
Indeed, traveling with children on lengthy plane flights, through multiple time zones and then bunking in strange beds, can, frankly, have its touchy moments. But the benefits of taking your children on a trip far outweigh any "what if" concerns.
Kids love spending time with you. At home it's too easy to get distracted by housework or office obligations. On vacation, you have fabulous quality time with your whole family, with opportunities to carve out some one-on-one time with each child if you like.
Children are learning, and they don't know it!
They'll be introduced to nomadic cultures and foods, broadening their horizons along the way and learning so much more than if they simply read about locales in school textbooks.
You're making amazing memories. Years and even decades after family vacations, your children will still be able to tell funny stories about the time that Dad tried to hunt with golden eagle, even Grandma climbed the Huiten (4374m) highest peak in Mongolia. Travel often inspires lifelong memories.
Introduce the concept of traveling to your children now, and they will grow up understanding that there is a huge world outside of their hometown. They'll have firsthand experiences that they can take with them to college and beyond, and then pass down their love of travel to their own children and grandchildren!
