Advantages and Disadvantages of Traveling with Family


We all know how important it is making time for our families in spite of the hectic schedules at work. The kids also has to keep up with the pressures at school and at home. Goes home, does homework, take  a shower and go to bed! Mom and Dad are exhausted after a whole day's work and hardly have time to talk or play. Everyone misses out and another day of their lives, spent doing all the life's cycle.

What a waste!

Everyday is supposed to be a chance for bond, for family to be happy and spend with each other to talk, play and just be there, communicating, right? But in reality it is not that easy.

Ours is the same.

And so, we put it off for bonding, on weekends! Yes! (Sounds like that, huh!)
So everyone is excited for the weekend to come!

Then came, bonding day!

Advantages

Being there traveling and spending quality time with them, is a blessing. Lots of family nowadays are spending time alone, or away from the family they so long and loved. Money and time spent with them is always worth. Most of all, nurturing friendships, starts with them. As it is often said, the family is the foundation of the society, so in this time of divorce, separation and break ups, it is a thing to hold and be grateful for. And like a glass, careful never to break it.


The Disadvantages

Because of familiarity, they clash! Yes! The supposedly fun day became, a debate on what to eat, or where to go and argues of here and there, traffic, what else? On our part, husband always has this dilemma of everything undesirable in his sight. Though he was far worst before, now he mellows a bit, lol.  And then, that starts up, the never ending discussion of why care, (whether the man in the street, or the slow driver ahead of us, small, silly things actually, made you even laugh after the heat of discussion abated) it is supposed to be a fun day!

Mothers/homemakers really has to have a ton of patience and persistence, anyway it is the most precious of all, family.

My family can never decide on one thing. Which is why I never go on big vacations with them.

Everything depends on the person I guess. As you said, the ability of patience and persistence makes the difference if you enjoy the free time with your loved once.
