Mommy Monday: Vacation Time is Family Time

Vacation Time is Family Time       

Summer Time is also Vacation Time, so make it Family time! What better time to plan a family vacation? Though family vacations can take a lot of planning, they are more than worth it. I don’t just mean the cliché “need to get away from it all” aspect. Family vacations are the perfect time to completely reconnect with our family and spend some serious quality time with one another. I’m not alone in this theory either.
Disney wanted to find out what families think about quality time at home versus on vacation. So they asked more than 1,000 parents of children age 5-17 to participate in a Disney Time Survey, which asked families to think about and share thoughts on quality time when at home – versus when on vacation.
According to the survey: “Ninety-one percent of parents report that quality time is achieved when they learn something new about their child, while 84 percent of parents say quality time means their child learned something new about them. From favorite to least favorite activities and food, to details about their children’s friends – the survey found that moms and dads saddled by hectic lifestyles are craving more time together with their kids.”
