If you’re aiming for your most memorable family vacation, start with these simple steps.
As someone who promotes sacrificing stuff to make more memories together as a family, I’ve learned a thing or two about planning fun family vacations.
1. Include everyone when planning.
2. Plan your possibilities.
State your expectations before leaving home. Do you expect to spend a lot of time together as a family? Is this trip designed to learn something new or simply get some R&R? Are your kids allowed to bring their own spending money or will you buy souvenirs and treats? Will you keep your home routine or is it OK to sleep in and eat sweets? Addressing questions like these before you go will help prevent and manage conflict on the trip.
