This might sound super obvious, but I find my husband constantly forgetting to do this easy but insanely necessary act: Ask my son before we head off in car, bus, or train if he has to PEE!
And, of course, 10 minutes into the drive, stuck in traffic somewhere my son screams, ‘I have to do Pee Pee!”

So take my advice: Not only ask them if they have to pee, tell them they aren’t going on trip unless they pee before hand. It’s amazing how quickly they find the extra water in their bladder to get rid off!
