ASK DR. G: Stop Backseat Bickering!
Ah, car trips…
Summer is coming, and we’re planning some travel. With four kids, it has to be a destination pretty far away to motivate us to by six plane tickets! So we spend a lot of time in the car. And nothing ruins a drive faster than bickering. “He’s touching me!” “You’re on my side!” “Gimme that!” It is nails-on-a-chalkboard, isn’t it?
Stop the bickering in seconds!
This is not my own tip, as I freely admit in the video. I heard this idea on a travel show on the radio, years before I even had kids. But I know sheer genius when I hear it!
