Most venues have convenient signs telling you not to grab fish. This one did not.
Most of travel is this way. You get to decide to do dangerous, stupid, silly, or just embarrassing things. You get to decide what to “expose” the kids to, like you’re some museum guide (curated childhood!).
You probably have your own grown-up travel hang-ups to deal with, too.
A new travel anthology seeks personal essays exploring the idea of traveling with children from a broad, philosophical perspective.
Tips for traveling with kids are great as long as they are also philosophical, inspirational, etc. We’re looking for inspiration for parents who generally find they need a vacation from their vacation in the first place.
There are reasons why we lust over travel. Our souls are changed, our perspective shifts, our creativity is unleashed. We learn acceptance, language, culture. Travel transforms us. Why wouldn’t we want to give that to our kids? What are we so afraid of?
Possible topics include (but are not limited to):
- Passing the travel bug to the next generation
- Nesting versus exploring
- Fears, terrorism, and protecting kids from the world
- How to keep your sanity and feel cared for
- Teaching values through travel
- How to inspire yourself and your kids
Accompanying art and photos a plus. 1000-4000 words.
