16 Parents Who Will Always Regret Bringing Their Kids On Vacation

When I was a kid, I kept wondering why people left out their kids when they went on vacations alone. Nowadays, with being a parent, everything makes perfect sense to me. Even if you are working every day, you do get to spend every moment with them at home. They are these little draining creatures that want simply everything at once. Having a two-hour break from them means an actual vacation for you as a parent. There is no doubt that you love them, and they’re the stars of your life but… Mama needs a cocktail from time to time.

Some parents thought they could handle both rest and kids… Which are mutually exclusive:

1. Some kids are natural travelers, while others…

…start crying hysterically even at the first gas station stop. Put a pair of siblings together in the back of a car and see your life fall apart in seconds.

History and museums are hard to understand for kids.

Tourists have a hard time with all those old stairs and buildings with no elevators. And babies, too…

Every kid has their own phase. It happens every month… You are there to survive all of them. Good luck!

11. You can’t schedule tantrums

Tantrums are inevitable. Kids don’t care if you want the perfect sightseeing or the perfect picture. They can always get angry.

12. Peaceful and kids never go together.

Try scolding that kid, and he will probably jump off that bridge in seconds.

Trying to soothe a sick kid in an unfamiliar environment, is simply a failed attempt.
