Most modern young families today rarely take vacations together because of the high cost of traditional vacations and the high cost of living. Even sadder is the fact that many young people do not take vacations as they have very little free time because they work such long hard hours at their full time jobs without any leave or holidays.
Young parents today do not even have the opportunity to have quality time with their children because they spend hours on the road stuck in office rush traffic to get to their work place every morning and then they spend long hours at the office only to spend many more hours on the road traveling back home usually returning late at night after their children are already asleep. The average adult spends close to twelve hours away from home every day, leaving home early morning and returning home late at night. If you are looking for an inexpensive vacation, you can look for a budget hotel in Chinatown.
In the past, parents and children would sit down to a home cooked family meal every evening before going to sleep but today most children survive on processed food and ready meals brought from the supermarket because parents no longer even have the time to cook for their children or for themselves. Although this may seem like a flaw with the parents, the very sad fact is that most of these parents do not have much of a choice because even with the long hard hours they work they find it very difficult to pay for their most basic needs and their children’s most basic needs. There are many amazing inexpensive hotels in little India in Singapore that you can look at for your vacation that will give your children an insight in to a new and exciting culture and lifestyle. They will also be able to taste some of the most delicious street food in the world.
The importance of a holidayThis said however, it is extremely important for a family to take a holiday together every now and again. Plan ahead and request a few days off from your company. Legally, you are entitled to having a few days off and if they do not give it to you, you can take them to court.
Taking a holiday means taking a break from everyday life and the stresses of work and for your children, from the stresses of school. It also means spending some time with your children and getting to know them as they grow up.
