From screams to annoying kicks in the back of your chair, noisy kids on flights can turn even a short flight to Greece into a real agony.
To reassure these naughty little ones, an air hostess reveals a trick that in most cases will help - but it requires a lot of courage from you.
An anonymous flight attendant told Travel and Leisure that the best way to calm noisy children on a plane is to ask them directly to keep quiet.
Do not turn to the parents and ask them to do something - but turn to the child yourself and tell him "please be quiet".
She explained: "It's much more real for a child when a stranger turns to him."
Of course you have to be bold enough to bypass the parents and turn directly to the child, but you can first turn to the parents, ask their permission - and only then turn to the child, as long as you of course do not attack him.

The flight attendant says that if it does not help, do not be ashamed to contact the staff of flight attendants who will be happy to find employment for the child.
According to her, the flight attendants are skilled in helping and finding distractions for the child with the help of activities that they usually keep on planes in case of need.
She added: "Usually planes are equipped with coloring books and things for kids to do."
Definitely worth asking for.
Sun Online Travel has previously reported that one of the common reasons young children cry on flights is the inevitable earache they experience due to the change in air pressure on the plane.
Since it is difficult for children to explain that they have to yawn or exhale with their noses and mouth closed to relieve the pressure in their ears, Danya Glover, who treats children on Etihad Airways flights, recommends an easier method for parents.
She told Conde Nast Traveler: "During take-off, many children experience earaches due to the increase in air pressure. Most parents think earplugs will solve the problem, but I recommend something else. Ask the flight attendant for hot water (not too hot, not too cold ", Tissue and glass. Put the wet tissue in the glass and then over the ear. The steam will release the pressure and soothe the pain. Good children, good flight!"
