|TIPS At the airport
Speak to your children again about the screening process so that they will not be frightened or surprised. Remind them not to joke about threats such as bombs or explosives.
Tell your children that their bags (backpack, dolls, etc.) will be put in the X-ray machine and will come out at the other end and be returned to them.
Let your children know that a Security Officer may ask to see Mom or Dad's shoes, but that they will get these back as well.
You may want to consider asking for a private screening if you are traveling with more than one child.
Tell them water or any other refreshment is allowed, but you can buy one after screening or on the plane.
