It’s not just the festive season but it’s the holiday season too. And out of all months, December has always been the most awaited month by many.
Vacations among families are known to build fond memories and moments, and it’s on parents to plan trips for their children to store the best childhood memories along the way for them. What many are not aware of is the impact and importance of these holidays on kids.
Children are inquisitive and they always seek new experiences. Vacations are the best way to foster that desire they root in them. In general, practical knowledge is a better way to learn new things compared to theoretical ones. For instance, Kidzania provides an environment for kids to explore the working world in an entertaining practical way. This improves the child’s brain and development at an early age.
Strengthen Family Ties
School holidays are always the times kids expect to spend quality time with their parents. Take a break from the busy working schedule to have a decent warm conversation with the family. Vacations seem to be the uninterrupted time to interact with them. According to the 2017 Family Survey conducted by Expedia, an online travel company, 97% of Indian teens felt that family vacations bring them close to their siblings, while 69% said their favorite memories occurred on family vacations. Go for a swim or have a great laugh with your kids over lunch during the short or long getaways. These little moments are the ones that create everlasting bonds between children and parents.
Reduce Stress And Anxiety
A good vacation can drain all stress and leave a happy mind behind. Throughout the year, children get exhausted with exams and homework which might have affected their mental health. Long school vacations allow kids to clear their heads, relax a little, and challenge their minds in new ways. Bring them over to their favorite holiday spots or maybe places where they can play all out to relieve their distress in them.
Helps Children Open Up
Since children are more likely to open up and talk about their joys and fears, parents can use the opportunity to indulge in light-hearted conversations with them and informally discuss the same.
Enhance Social Skills
Kids get to learn and see the beautiful cultures of people, languages, food, and living habits when they are on a vacation. It is parents who educate the children about these new places, but the children can also learn by interacting and exploring with the locals. This increases their confidence and also improves their social and interpersonal skills.
Be it a one-day or a long vacation, initiating these getaways are going to be important. Make sure your kids get to rejuvenate and refresh their minds before starting over the new academic year. Plan that holiday and take your child on an adventure, creating memories.
Make sure to equally have fun and stay safe along the journey. Happy Holiday!
