Tips for flying with children

I've flown a lot with my kids. I have four kids, so I really have it down. I would say, my tips on traveling, be at the airport early. Wear slip on shoes because you all have to take your shoes off, and you all have to put them back on. Everyone should have their own backpack and they carry it. It has food, entertainment, and candy, right? If your kids are under the age of three, they should have a car seat. Just like when they are in the car, they can get up and go to the bathroom, but they go right back in the seat. I don't let my kids under three have their own free-will. I would say that if you have a kid under three, bring candy because you are going to have to have something to bribe them with. When the flight attendant says, "Please have your child sit down." And you see the mom where the kid is crawling all over the place. She should have candy. She should bribe them. You say, "If you sit down, you can have a piece of candy. If you don't, you don't get any candy." It really works with my kids.
