I always swore I'd never be that mom.

You know, the one handing her kids iPads and iPhones...then I tried a road trip with kids.

Road trips with toddlers are fresh new hell for us. And in case you didn't know (or have forgotten) road-tripping with a toddlers just plain ol' sucks. Like a rainy day on Labor Day, toddlers and cars do not mix. 

When our toddler was a sweet little baby, road trips were like a pleasant stroll. Sure, you'd stumble over a pile of poop every now and then, but overall, it was a breeze. Lots of naps and smiles.

Then the baby became a toddler. I learned that toddlers really resent being told what to do. Especially when they're strapped into a chair for hours. Who knew?! ​

This month, Today.com has asked its Parenting Team to reveal their secrets to travel success with children in tow. I have one secret and because I like you, I'll share it with you. I'm not proud of it, or enthused by it, but I do it. So there you have it. If you have a better idea, let me know!!

Choose your battles. Road Tripping parents/warriors, this is not a battle to be won. Until the kids are older, anyway. ​The Secret to Road Trip Success with Kids is short and sweet.
