Traveling and getting to explore the world!
God CREATED this earth for us to enjoy and to draw closer to him. Most families have the opportunity to spend more time together during the summer period. Many families will be thinking of what to do, where to go or how to entertain the young ones, sometimes without getting responses to any of these thoughts. However, traveling and exploring the world need not be limited to these periods. There are so many benefits to taking the time to build memories with your family and from three-day weekends to vacations in different parts of the world. Taking a break from the daily routine is highly beneficial to family and relationships.
The summer season offers a wide variety of options for everyone. Regardless of the choice we make, we must remember that creating time for the family is vital since these moments serve to interact in an atmosphere of relaxation and thus help to share exciting experiences together. It is also important to remember that the vacation should be no less than 15 days. This is ideal if you want to involve the children in planning.
When the family decides to take a vacation, issues like school, college, and jobs remain in the background. This is another instance of learning, learning to make contact with yourself, with nature and with others. It also implies taking the time to distance yourself from the everyday routine which in turn helps to strengthen or redirect your efforts.
Family vacations can be implemented to monitor our performance as a family. It also provides an opportunity to recognize our values, beliefs and ways of perceiving the world that identifies us as a family. It can also be used to assess what sets us apart, skills, interests of each member and strengthening the sense of belonging and family unity.
Thus, it is important that parents understand that the place to go is not important, the goal is for children to rest and have a change of activity and not necessarily to be filled with activities. It has been established time without number that children who have good vacation experiences with their parents usually have a healthy relationship, are more expressive and communicative with adults. Also, they establish a relationship of complicity and confidence based on acceptance, parental affection, and consideration, developing a sense of belonging that is favorable in different evolutionary stages.
Importance of vacation can be summarized as follows:
It supports the development of basic trust in infants;
It encourages spontaneity, initiative, and self-knowledge of the environment in preschool;
It fosters the discovery of skills in various everyday contexts, which is fundamental to the self-concept in school age. They will also learn to develop a positive and optimistic attitude toward life.
It supports and promotes the process of identity in adolescents and youth, through conversation and debate in a protected environment.
It is advisable to create time for family holidays since it creates time to foster and develop family bonding. It is also an avenue to enjoy the beauty of God’s nature. Some of these things may not be noticeable in everyday routine. At the end of the holidays, do not forget to take stock of your experiences, making a positive assessment of the vacation experience. You can do the viewing of photos and videos together with the young ones and other members of the family. This enriches the quality of rapport and the impact will last longer in the memories of young ones for a long time.
