Separate Siblings and Bring Entertainment


  • Separate siblings with pillow barriers.
  • Entertain kids with CDs and kid-friendly music playlists. Music is wonderful for changing the mood when the mood needs changing.
  • Try word games. Find an object out the window beginning with each letter of the alphabet. Try a round of 20 questions. Even little ones can play "I Spy" and other simple car games.
  • For older kids, an iPod, eReader, or other gadget works wonders.
