We love to travel with the kids. And they have always love to be with us in all the trips we have made together. Your children are the most precious thing you have so it makes sense to have them by your side as much as possible.
Well, if it’s a matter of economy, this is ok to save some money not taking them along. In other hand if you can afford expensive travels, then this is a good investment to go for a first or a business class ticket for the family and stay in a spacious hotel suite. Everybody will be happy.
I sometimes hear people that does not agree with travelling with children, with the following points of view:
1) “This is total waste of money, as they won’t remember anything”.
My answer: If they can´t remember the travel, then they will not remember having stayed at home as well.” And yes, everything that happens around them will be inside their subconscious, forming their personality, so this is important to have the parents arround. But besides the memory subject, I can add that we take our children because we love them and we want to be together as much as possible.
2) “ The couple needs some time alone and a bit of romance “
My answer: “ I think this question was made by someone who never has had romance at home. If so, then it is right. But if not, do exactly what you did at home: Call a nanny for help. We have travelled with kids and we have had lots of romance. We have made dozens of super luxury restaurants and events arround the globe, with the help of a local nanny. So simple. Again this is a matter of affordability. We love to make luxury trips and everything always worked out fine with the kids.
3) “Children are inconvenient and they are always crying and shouting”
My answer. Well, this is not a matter of travelling. This is a matter of education, something that you built at home. So before everything, this has to be fixed.
