Written by

Have you ever gotten on a plane and realized you were seated next to a baby or a small toddler? Did you think to yourself, “Great. Just great. What did I do to deserve this?” If you have, just know that you’re the worst. This is not for you.

No, this is for the parents of those small children. You brave and unfortunate souls. That person I just described is the worst because they don’t realize that nobody hates being on a plane with a small child more than the parents of that small child.

If we are going raise a generation to better understand the world and its people then traveling while children are young is a must.
