Going places can be stressful to little ones, as anybody who has traveled with a little one can attest. Even going somewhere the wee one wants to be can be stressful–to the wee one and to everybody within earshot and kicking-the-back-of-the-seat-shot.
Recently, someone of my acquaintance went on a long car trip with a four-year-old. He loved their destination, once he got used to being in a new place. He relaxed, had fun, but got homesick. His mother sought to comfort him by telling him they were going home the next day.
He was stricken.
I don’t want to go through it all again!!
Neither did anyone else, but they love him and leaving him behind was not an option.
