I have had a few jobs that involved airline travel with the kids. Nannies end up a lot of the time packing the kids clothes and necessities for the trip. Have you had kids that are interested in helping to pack, but you have no idea where to start? Cloud Surfing Kids, a blog from a flight attendant mom, attacks the packing and kids question.
Do you usually pack for your children or do they have the responsibility? At what age do you think it’s appropriate to let your child pack everything for himself without your input, or does that vary for each individual?
Here is my daughter, Ella, at age 4, enthusiastically packing the “necessities”. I hadn’t given her any guidance, so I had to weed some of it out, but she enjoyed the project.
