Question:
Is it OK for kids to read in the car?

Answer:
Yes, in most cases this will be just fine. Occasionally, in unsteady traffic or on rough roads, the child could become nauseated or dizzy. If that happens ask them to stop reading and rest for a few minutes with their eyes closed. This should help the symptoms.
