Travel fills your family in all senses. Discover landscapes, enjoy culinary diversity, experience cultures and, above all, simply escape from the familiar environment. And especially for the development of children, these new influences are extremely important.
Traveling with children – investing in a happy future
While play toys of children often lose their charm shortly after they are bought, vacations and travel offer lifelong happiness. Children enjoy the moment of the journey as well as the memories for many years or the rest of their lives just like grown-up people. In addition, there is also the optimistic effect on development in children, which is often not openly tangible yet is all the more essential.
Children would think less or would not use the prank apps installed in their gadgets if they are on vacation.
The right kind of vacation with children
One of the biggest mistakes parents make is assuming that children are interested in the same things they are interested in on vacation. High culture, for example, is something that children usually only care about in small doses. Through children’s eyes, one of the most thrilling cultural differences may be that France sells Orangina instead of Fanta. In general, it is particularly important for children to be relaxed about the new impressions and nothing has to be forced here. The focus should be fully on the shared moments. So the cell phone can simply be left in the hotel for a day.
Short trips also have a positive effect
It doesn’t always have to be a 2-week vacation in the Caribbean Sea. Even an enjoyable weekend trip to the coast can have very positive effects. The main thing is to spend nice moments together, laugh and not take life as seriously as it often seems in everyday life.
Traveling promotes children’s intelligence
When children splash around in the pool with their parents, feel the feeling of sand under their feet, or even dash across the beach on daddy’s back, their play system is more likely activated. In addition, if you discover new things together, the seeking system of your children is activated. Both triggers are of great importance for children’s cognitive development.
