As a parent, there is nothing greater than having your grandparents involved in your family life and seeing them connect with your children. Grandparents adore to spend time with their grandchildren and it is important for the little ones to enjoy time with them, plus it can also be handy to lighten the load as a parent!
Going on Holiday
A multigenerational holiday where you all set off for a vacation is a lovely idea and will certainly provide many happy memories for all. Whilst a multi generational holiday can strengthen bonds, it can also pose a challenge and particularly if one of your parents has mobility issues. Kids like to do lots of activities and get out and about whilst on vacation, so it is important that you are able to do this (even if you want nothing more than to lounge around by the pool all week!).
It is important to cater to the kids and also schedule in time for rest and relaxation, so how do you keep everyone happy on a multigenerational holiday? One of the best things to do, and particularly if mobility is an issue, is to purchase mobility scooters and choose suitable accommodation. These can eliminate the stress and make it much easier for your parents to get out and about whether it is going out for dinner or seeing the tourist attractions. In many cases, these scooters can be lightweight and even foldable, so taking them on vacation with you can be simple and straightforward.
A mobility scooter will allow everyone to enjoy a multigenerational holiday and get around the destination with ease. Although important for the grandparents to come along for some of the outings, so you may also want to schedule time for everyone to be apart too. Although multigenerational holidays are a great idea and can strengthen bonds, it is also good to have some independence so that you can pursue your own interests. The grandparents are likely to want some time alone to relax, whilst the kids may also want you to take them somewhere more lively and active. Additionally, you will also want some peace and quiet yourself, so arrange an evening for the grandparents to babysit whilst you indulge and pamper yourself – one of the perks of bringing your parents along!
Going on holiday with your parents and your children can be a lovely idea that creates many happy memories, but you must also think about monolith and the needs of each generation too.
