“About four years ago we pulled our kids out of school to travel. We’ve visited 17 countries and learned two great strategies: We find an area of interest for the kids, such as art or photography, so the focus for them is on taking amazing pictures. The other is to allow everyone a voice in the planning of a day. If I planned a location I was excited about, maybe Banks got to choose the type of food we would eat, and Anna would choose the leisure activity for the day.”
