With children spending most of their waking hours in school, there’s not enough opportunity for a family to bond and have fun. The only time they get to enjoy each other’s company is when the kids are home for their summer vacation. This is one reason why many families really plan well and hard to mark a few weeks (even months) off on their calendars. They reserve these dates for a grand family vacation.
Long work hours, homework, and various activities usually prevent a family from enjoying fun activities, or even dinner, together. That’s why it’s very important for a family to schedule a vacation. That’s the only time they can spend uninterrupted time together. The vacation could be for three days or three weeks; the length of time doesn’t really matter. What matters is that they were able to spend quality time together.
