Travelling with kids? Sick of hearing “Are we there yet?” Carry a brown paper bag filled with patience. (Yes, okay, it’s empty but the kids don’t know that!) At the start of a trip take some patience out. Patience can be eaten, sprinkled over you, or over each other, sucked, gargled, worn, inhaled… as long as it works.
Be dramatic as you apply your patienceand have a good laugh. This is a great way to start a journeyand an excellent way to shake things up when the kids get restless. Top up on patience regularly.
