In the March edition of our newsletter, The Sodha Traveler, I discuss the benefits of traveling with children. Textbooks are important resources but can limit the personal experiences that create global citizens. Traveling encourages children to develop personal connections and nurtures their desire to explore. It can also build confidence and teach tolerance, patience, communication, adaptability, and diversity.
Traveling with children also requires planning, and here is a list of resources to assist with your kid-friendly journey:
Wanderlust and Lipstick: Traveling with Kids by Michelle Duffy
How to Fit a Car Seat on a Camel: And Other Misadventures Traveling with Kids by Sarah Franklin
The Rough Guide to Travels with Babies and Young Children by Fawzia Rasheed de Francisco
Travels with Baby: The Ultimate Guide for Planning Trips with Babies, Toddlers, and Preschool-Age Children by Shelly Rivoli
As my husband I prepare to return to India with our toddler, we look forward to sharing in the joy as he experiences new wonders of the world. If you would like to receive future editions of our monthly newsletter, please register on our site!
