What’s the benefit to taking a family vacation? Is it necessary to set time aside to take my kids on a vacation every summer? Is it realistic to plan a reunion when you have a really big family? (or really small family?) I want my kids to grow in unity with strong faith-filled families, but that doesn’t pertain to our biological extended family…What can I do? How should I prioritize and plan my upcoming family vacation? Isn’t vacation time supposed to be relaxing? Why do vacations often feel like more work? What are some tips to surviving summer activities and vacations with kids?
I love doing family retreats! I want my kids to have good relationships with cousins, aunts and uncles. When things get difficult in the teen years, we call on them to help us parent! -Kari
