Sophie Russell in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida said: We own our own company in the restaurant industry. We are considering going into truck driving as a team owner operator with 2 children that are 8 year old. Any families on the road now, please send any comments!!! Are children welcome on the road?

No no no. First of all trucking is a brutal life. You gotta love what you. Its no life for a child of any age. Kids get to ride a few weeks in summer sure but to live in on a dif story. What about whenout of hours with no bathroom or dinner? Snowed in somewhere for days . we get paid by the mile not the hour. We work 70 plus hours a week 14 plus hours a day. Honestly when we stop we wanna shower eat and sleep. We want quiet n rest. Not screaming messy kids everywhere. Furthermore alot of such as myself think its child abuse. If i see a child Living in a truck ill call the cops and local dhs for child endangerment. Im not the only one. Might keep that in mind

Living on the road is one thing. But a ride should be OK. This person just seems to HATE KIDS. THIS ADVICE IS FROM A IGNORANT PERSON. I will be taking my son and we will ride with my fiancee for about a weeK, it should be okay when we stop but living on the road of course is a no no With kids. Nut a trip should be okay. I know kids could be annoying and get tired of the ride and maybe me to but a week out of summer vacation to spend with his dad shouldn't upset anyone especially if you are a loving family. No one should ever live on road with kids I am quite sure you didn't mean live on road. Bye.

We will be going on the road with our kids. (People do it all the time) the co that is training us allows children. Carry snacks, tablets with internet, a 5 gallon bucket with pool noodle & trash bag inside for emergency toilet. It depends on the kids. Our kids want to travel. They'll be 10 & 8. DHS wont do a damn thing as long as the kids are taken care of. Ex: fed, bathed entertained etc. I am a licensed M.A. & MMR. This guys a schmuck. Its no different than taking the kids in an RV cross country..

I can't find any company that allows more than one person. Anyone know a co that excepts kids?
