If you’ve ever flown with kids, you know how nice it is when they conk out and take a nap for most the your time in the air. Well, I’m here to tell you that you don’t necessarily have to resort to sedating your kids to get them to sleep when you’re travelling. Rather, whenever we fly, we tell our kids that we’re on a “Nap Flight”. A “Nap Flight” is defined as a leg of the flight when everybody has to take a nap — except, of course, for the cockpit crew and the flight attendants. Granted, we don’t travel by air that much, but to this day, our eight year old will still ask, “Is this a nap flight?” before boarding an airplane. If your child is a little more skeptical, start pointing to people on the plane and say, “Look… He’s going to take a nap. She’s going to take a nap.” And so on, until they’re convinced. You’ll be amazed. This has worked wonders for us, and may work for you too!
