Holidays with the family: why is it important and how are harmonious holidays guaranteed?

Our everyday lives are usually characterized by stress and time pressure. Reconciling work with the family is a great challenge. Only rarely do parents enjoy hours together with their children, which – especially with offspring in adolescence – often leave a bad aftertaste due to disputes. Many mothers and fathers fear that family holidays could turn into a disaster. However, if you do it right, you can only benefit from it, because it is important for young and old.

Welding the family together

Experience has shown that shared experiences weld young and old together. A time-out leads to relaxation on both sides, suddenly all family members show a completely different behavior than at home. You get to know each other in a practically new way in changed life situations. To make this possible, parents and their children should do as much as possible together on holiday. This includes enjoying daily meals, relaxing hours on the beach and varied leisure activities.

Gain time together

Saving time is an important aspect during the holiday trip. Our everyday life is shaped by professional and school life, plus household, shopping and much more. After school, children often have to do a lot of homework. If there are hobbies on the agenda, the day is over without parents and offspring being able to talk in peace. A trip takes us out of the daily grind and finally allows us to spend a pleasant time together.

Charging batteries

At the latest when the travel preparations such as packing our suitcases are finally behind us, our energy reserves are usually used up. Holidays are the perfect opportunity to recharge our batteries and recharge our batteries. While parents and offspring relax together, all family members recharge their energy reserves. You benefit from this not only during the holidays, but also long afterwards – a harmonious coexistence at home is therefore on the agenda.

Today, the majority of the population has a smartphone with a good camera function. So it’s easy to capture funny and extraordinary moments forever on a picture.

Learning for life on holiday

We hear again and again that travel broadens horizons. On every holiday we meet different cultures, customs and customs. Children often take great pleasure in learning foreign languages and showing off their newly acquired knowledge on site. The exotic tastes of foreign dishes can be tasted as well as unknown sports. For young and old, cosmopolitanism becomes a matter of course. The shared experiences and also the knowledge learned provide a first-class basis for a harmonious family life.

Choose a holiday destination together

It is impossible to make a generally valid statement as to when children should or can have a say in the choice of destination. It depends above all on their level of development, which varies greatly. Furthermore, it plays a role to what extent the offspring is also involved in family decisions in everyday life. Experts say that a child from the age of about 14 should be involved in decisions in all areas of life. To protect our youngest, exceptions confirm the rules.

Find the perfect destination

If opinions about the holiday destination are completely different, compromises should be found. The holidays are doomed to failure if one or the other family member “puts a good face on the bad game”.
