Mom Says – Vacation Time!

Martha Putnam, Hanley Center Foundation, Coordinator of Adult Programs

Family vacation!

With so many different intrests in a family it can be hard to plan a vacation that pleases everyone. This a great time to have a family meeting, to be sure you include something for everyone.

You can discuss things like where you want to go, what does everyone want to do, and how budget and time restrictions may impact your decisions. 

We had planned a family camping trip to go trout fishing but that was not that exciting for the teenagers to be disconnected from their electronic world for a week.  After listening to their concerns we added some stops while traveling to include some fun things they wanted to do too.

How do you include your kids in vacation planning?  Make sure to leave your ideas to help out other parents on our facebook page, #MomSays.
