What your children need most is loving, happy parents who spend quality moments with them. When we travel together we strengthen our family bond with shared memories of adventure, carefree living, exploration, laughter and play time.
Life is about enjoying experiences and accumulating memories — it’s what shapes who we are and is the only thing that we can take with us to the end.
Some would call it, “The village raising the child.” There is so much the locals in your vacation destination can teach your child without even trying.
My children are quickly learning that strangers can easily become friends. All it takes is a smile to break down barriers, a common connection, a few stories to share, games to play, and a laugh thrown in.
Not only does travel teach you thinks like compassion, understanding, and empathy, but it also teaches your children about prejudices and stereotypes, and acceptance of the ways other people live.
