Keeping kids calm on a flight and when to claim compensation through a law firm
Many people are nervous about flying and there are various techniques available to help you to keep yourself calm when you are on a flight. However, is can be more difficult to keep children calm on a flight, especially very small children or babies, who will not understand quite as well what is going on and what they are experiencing. No one wants to be the parent with the screaming child throughout the whole flight, so here are some tips on keeping your kids entertained and making them feel safe in the air.
- Talk to them. As the flight begins you should keep talking to your children, letting them know exactly what is happening, what will happen next and what they can expect over the next few hours. Be prepared to answer questions and provide support if they need it.
- Keep them busy. Take their minds off of the flight itself by providing them with toys and games, or offering to play a game with them, at least when the flight is first beginning and they are the most nervous. Bring your own entertainment, don’t just rely on the airline.
- Ask the stewards for help. If you can get the attention of an air steward, they may be able to offer a little more help and advice for your children, and will usually have a decent amount of experience when it comes to calming children down on flights.
- Get them to sleep. If you can keep your children from napping before you get onto the flight, hopefully they will be so tired that before the plane is even in the air they will fall asleep.
