Family travel is always an adventure, whether you’re having the time of your life at an amusement park, or struggling to keep your kid entertained on a 12 hour flight.

We travel with our kids a lot, and while we’ve had some great adventures, it isn’t always ice cream and cool scenery. Sometimes, it’s delayed flights and rush hour traffic and everyone grasping at the last straw of their patience.

Over the years, we’ve found a few things to be universally true about family travel.

The 10 immutable laws of travel with kids

  1. Your child will urgently need to pee at the absolute maximum calculated distance between washrooms. Count on it.
  2. You will hear “are we there yet?” a minimum of 8,271,422 times.
  3. Someone will throw up. There won’t be a washroom anywhere nearby.
  4. It’s not a road trip until someone pees in the bushes or in a back alley. See #1.
  5. Someone will forget their favorite stuffed toy.
  6. Your child will pick the airport security line to ask loudly, “Mom, tell me how to make bombs? Did you hear me Mommy, I said BOMBs!!!”
  7. Have you ever wondered where the lone shoes at the side of the road come from? Somehow, somewhere, your kid will lose one of theirs, and solve the mystery forever.
  8. Always pack snacks. Always.
  9. There’s always time for coffee.
  10. Do not, under any circumstances, pick a road trip to introduce your child to knock-knock jokes.

How Netflix downloads can help

The bottom line is that family travel is always a challenge. In fact, 1 in 5 Canadian parents say one of their main concerns when travelling is keeping their kids entertained.

Luckily, Netflix ix on hand to help. Did you know that Netflix lets you download shows to watch on the go?

Let me say that again, because it’s a game changer for parents (and kids!) who travel. You can download shows and movies on Netflix to watch again later.

There’s a huge selection of downloadable shows, from tried-and-true shows like Beat Bugs  and Luna Petunia to new shows like Stretch Armstrong & The Flex Fighters.

There’s sure to be something on Netflix to entertain your young one. Whether they’re a teen or a toddler, you’ll find something on Netflix to pack in their carry on.

Don’t worry, there are plenty of great shows for the grown ups too. We just finished bingeing OZARK – it’s a fantastic show.

If you have kids, you’ll know that being trapped in the car on a family road trip sometimes feels like being trapped in Litchfield prison.
