What specifically are you scared about?
Best place to cross the border depends on where you are coming from.
For young kids, bring a pee bucket (they can't wait until the next stop), snacks and drinks (they can't wait until the next stop), and plenty of paper towels for messes. And toilet paper.
If you aren't willing to let them roam the vehicle then plan on frequent short stops. Kids don't do well strapped in for hours on end unless sleeping. Ipods and DVD players help.
What kind of vehicle? If not a common model in Mexico then bring spare parts like fan belts, headlights, etc. I keep an emergency kit that includes basic tools, flashlights, 12v air compressor, power inverter, jumper cables, tape, rope, etc.
