1. WHEN TALKING DOES NOT WORK, BUILD A BARRIER
How many times did you travel with your kids in the car and things turned to a Tom & Jerry fight in the back? Probably many times, right? This is how things become when talking does not work. This is mostly the case, especially when kids are at a very young age.
You don’t have to yell, shout or scream in their face, because trust us, THEY WON’T LISTEN ANYWAY. So stay as calm as you can. If things get really bad, you can construct a barrier by using two pieces of cardboard.
Cut them to fit your car’s size with holes for their hands. Of course, you will not silence them, but hopefully, they will before your mind explodes.
2. GET YOUR KID A COMFORTABLE PLACE TO SLEEP IN
Traveling for long distances in a car is really exhausting for both the passengers and drivers. That is why you are mostly recommended to take a rest every 2 or 3 hours before hitting the road again.
Your kids in the backseat must be tired too, so make sure you get them something like a kids’ sleeping bag with pillow. You can go on the day prior to your journey and pick one of those children’s sleeping bags sold in the market.
If you provide your kids with such a comfy place to rest, you will hear less noise while traveling. You can also purchase an inflammable mattress and place it in the back seat to enjoy a safe and quiet drive.
