10. Equip your car for emergencies
When traveling during the winter months, particularly with children in the car, ensure that you’re equipped for emergencies. Load the trunk with enough blankets for each member of the family in case you get stranded. Keep bottled water and a supply of snacks in the car. Ensure that you have flares, a flashlight with working batteries and a set of jumper cables.
While the winter weather presents the chance for exciting adventures, it can also be dangerous, especially for children. Take steps to protect your little ones during the coldest season of the year and ensure that everyone is safe and sound to enjoy the spring thaw when it arrives.
