We have just come back from a week on Holiday with Teenagers. It was great. We went with Rob & Davina Brown who are back from Malawi for the summer. We had such fun - walking, talking, eating, playing games, canoeing, shopping (!)in the Lakes.
These are a few last thoughts about Holidays with Teenagers after several summers holidaying with other families we have had: (they may apply to any holiday)
Going on holiday with another family can be great - everyone has a friend (hopefully!).
Book early. Start thinking now for next year.
Talk about expectations (outings, food, get-up times, washing up...).
Have grace and patience for those who do things differently.
Plan some activities altogether and leave room to do things separately.
Serve one another.
Try and interact with everyone at some level at some time.
Make memories that will last forever.
