A traveling mom with teens: Cindy Richards: As the TravelingMomswithTeens editor for TravelingMom.com, Cindy Richards’ goal is to tell parents what works for kids, what doesn’t and what they need to know before they go.
She believes that travel is an important part of family life and here’s why:
“There is the educational value of introducing kids to other places, other cultures and other foods,” she says.
After years of traveling every week for business, Kim sought out other moms who traveled to understand how they dealt with the guilt, the scheduling and their family relationships. Advice from the trenches made travel–and life–much easier and often much more fun. Kim realized that other traveling moms would appreciate these insights, too, and TravelingMom.com was born. Just a few years later, TravelingMom is among the best known family travel web communities with the leading travel writer network. The advice and insight of this community is sought out by national news networks, travel companies and traveling moms who need to know.
She has been selected as the travel expert for Wyndham’s Women on Their Way, Mom Talk Radio and has been featured in Good HouseKeeping, NY Times Travel, Forbes.com, Hannah Storm’s CBS News Blog, JuJu Chang’s Moms Get Real and The Montel Williams Show.
