One year, we all decided that we would rather go on vacation and make memories over acquiring things. To make this more of an exciting decision, we all planned our own vacation down to the details and within a budget. I guess you can say my wanderlust was seriously nurtured by my parents! What an amazing way to help children learn about budgeting, different countries, modes of transportation, and forming a solid plan and pitch. It was clear to us that we would all get to have our ideas heard and considered, but
this was no democracy.
The adults had the final say on which vacation would win. I was not the winner that year. I had planned a lovely villa stay in Costa Rica. We ended up at an all-inclusive resort in Jamaica that was planned by my brother. I still plan on taking that villa vacation though!
So, let’s get our kids involved and let them help plan! Be sure to let me know where your little travelers have you going!
Motivated mom, wife, daughter, friend, makeup artist, motivational speaker (even if only to my kids) and more that has a dynamic approach to life, parenting, and traveling with her not so little but fiercely fought for family! Please be impressed by that sentence. It took me two cups of coffee to create!
