Why taking a summer vacation with your children is so important.
Well, it’s about that time of year again, when our thoughts turn to vacations. Summer vacations can provide some of the best memories for kids and parents alike. And whether it’s camping, visiting relatives or taking in a theme park, these holidays do more than just give us a well-deserved break says Nicholas Long, co-author of Parenting the Strong Willed Child.”The most important thing about family vacations and family time together are the interactions and really stressing deepening of the relationship between parents, children and other family members. So the focus shouldn’t be on spending money, or going to the most expensive places, but really on time together when they can all have fun together. It’s time that parents and children spend together that provides the opportunity for the relationship to strengthen, which in turn will help the parents be more effective parents.”
