stressful. It is one of the main reasons why most families go on a vacation
when their children are on school holidays. It is sad though that many travel
agencies take advantage of the so called peak period. If you book a vacation
last minute, cheap holiday deals are already fully-booked and the prices of flights and accomodations are sky high.
It is advisable to always book your family overseas trips in advance like I usually do. It will save you the stress of not being able to go away for a much needed break to relax and unwind.
Short getaways is the only means my family can get a break from the hustle and bustle
of city life. While families with high income normally go to Japan, Korea, Australia
and Europe for one to two weeks, my family is contented and overjoyed enough when we can go for a 3D2N beach escapade. Why? Because the hubby and I once lived a very simple life when we were young. We never experienced going out of town for a family vacation. Our school holidays back then were spent at home playing with the kids in the neighborhood.
In this iPod/iPhone/iPad age, though the children are considered very fortunate, it is sad to see them grow in a very high tech environment and the appreciation of living a simple life is lost. It is disturbing to see them enjoy playing with the most advanced gadgets inside the four corners of their respective rooms instead of playing in the parks surrounded by the vast natural world and fresh air. We parents have to make an effort to bring them out and let them experience the gifts of the beautiful world that God has created. It doesn't always have to be done out of town. Look around where you live, find a place surrounded by God's love and take your kids for a nature walk. With persistence, it is still possible to raise kids who knows how to appreciate nature and care for the mother earth. It will make a big difference in this computer age.
