Different Strokes for Family Members
A recent chat question keeps running through my head: This one from a man whose wife wants their vacation to be about sightseeing, museums and theater, and two teens who want beaches and amusement parks.
Initially I was thnking about where he could go where both sets of activities could be simultaneously but separately enjoyed. Maybe L.A. or San Diego? But what about the family part of family travel? Would it be better for both parties to compromise? Like they could head north and all of them spend a day at a Jersey amusement park, then hit some theater and museums in New York, then catch the beach in Long Island? I.e. do some of what each wants, but together as a family? Isn't compromise and togetherness what human connections are all about?
Then again, if the mother is miserable in amusement parks and the children are miserable in museums, why should anyone have to use their vacation time to do something they hate? What do you think? (By the way, the man never mentioned what he wanted.)
