Two Dads and a Child in Paris

David and Michael are same-sex parents who have been married for 18 years.  Gay parents face the same issues as all other parents: how to keep their children engaged and happy while traveling. Their son, Zane, was only 7 when they first came to Paris. How do you deal with a child that age? David, who talks to us today, has great nuggets of wisdom on how to travel with children. Not only for gay parents, but for all parents. David’s interview starts at 11’50”, before the interview Annie gives advice on how to deal with strikes in France.
