Traveling with Kids – Pro Tip

We travel for holidays and other times throughout the year. We have a 5 year old van. It has a DVD player.

We have some DVDs but not a ton, most media is digital. The van has no way to hook it up.

Here is what I do and this is a pretty good tip if you can do it.

Find a Redbox in the city you are in – Walgreens usually has one. Rent a few DVDs for one night, maybe 5 bucks.

Then at your destination – drop them off. Works every time!

iPads and Kids

If you had kids, and an iPad, they may try to unlock it themselves. You may run into a situation where you see something like this

This is a representation of what my iPad just looked like.

In this case, there are two things you can do. Well, besides waiting 1 million years.

  1. If you have find my iPhone set up you can remotely wipe it. That works if the iPad is connected to Wifi.
  2. If you have your computer, you can connect it, open iTunes and hard reset it. iTunes will ask you to update or restore. Restore it. You can then set it up fresh or restore from backup once it comes back up

Seems like this is a problem that should be solvable somehow 🙂
