Limit children's "Are we there yet?" moans with these distraction tips:
- Plan the journey in advance and mark it on a map, so the children can follow your progress. Highlight landmarks so they can point these out too.
- Make regular short stops -- even if you stop on the side of the road. Fresh air will revive all of you.
- Music passes the time. Give everyone in the car a song request to avoid arguments.
- Try playing word games, such as I Spy. If kids are alert, car sickness and boredom are less likely.
