Top 7 Ways to Enjoy Driving with your Kids

By Eva Glettner |

I’m a born and bred Angeleno. People in LA spend a great deal of time in their cars. Sometimes, driving can be agonizingly painful. Mix in a couple of whining or fighting children, and it’s a recipe for disaster.

Thankfully, though, there are ways to make it through intact. If these tricks worked for me in rush hour traffic on the dreaded 405 (remember Carmeggedon?), they will work for you wherever you live. Keep in mind that these tricks are for kids, not babies. Huge distinction here. Do not feed little babies in the car… they can choke and *cough* I may be speaking from experience (darn arrowroot teething biscuit).


Top 7 Ways to Enjoy Driving with your Kids

1. Stick various books and magazines in the car.

If you have multiple children, make sure that there are enough interesting things for all of them. I call it the roaming library. Throw some notebooks and pens in the car if the urge to scribble arises.
