It's a lot to ask of a toddler to sit quietly for that long in an uncomfortable seat with little to do. No wonder a kid fidgets, kicks seats, talks too loudly and pesters the passengers around her.

I was never that kid, though. My family drove to our vacation destinations. Bad behavior was confined to the car, and my parents were the only ones who had to suffer.

How old were you when you took your first trip on a plane? Do you fly with your children? How well do they behave?
