When I was little, I didn’t get to ride in the car very often. It was either public transportation or walking. Once in a while when we visited my grandpa, he would drive us in his tiny 2 door car (which he won in a lottery) to visit his sister and my great-grandmother. That would translate into 2 (sometimes 3) adults in the front and 3 or 4 people in the back, adults and children mixed in. Heck, I loved it! I loved looking out the window for as long as I could stay awake, but most of the time I’d sleep, no matter whether I was tired or not…

Now, our kids are complete opposite. They will resist sleeping for as long as they can. On top of that, they won’t look out the window when they have such a perfect opportunity to fight. You can bribe them, yell at them, bury them in books, toys and activities, but none of that will guarantee a quiet peaceful car ride. Here’s the proof.
