As can cope with summer holiday at foreign mothers and fathers?

In very many countries - in any way. The majority of families does not go anywhere, spends holidays of the house, cleaning and usovershenstvuya the dwelling. Summer establishing order, ejection old and superfluous, the pleasure the home, sweet home (“the house lovely (sweet), the house“) in a circle of favourite books, things, without any obligations to strangers - for many is a pastime ideal. Here are engaged in the hobbies (display collections, cut shelves, replace flowers), sometimes going to swim for a while or take a walk in the wood. Rare departures are possible - to visit the distant relatives or acquaintances in other end of the state or even abroad. The short trip on 2 - 3 on the native land is not excluded day. Quite often on trips spend not holidays, and long weekends, having connected days off to a compensatory holiday or a holiday. Other families sign up for some new course: to learn a foreign language, for the first time to play a ping - a pong. It is absolutely normal and natural to go in the village to help elderly parents about the house. At last, if there is own dacha, it is simple not to spend a sin at it so much time how many it will turn out. Or to rent the dacha for a while.

More and more popular: them much in the Baltic States, in this case each family on forces of times a year is constructed to go to the new place; on bathing there are enough several hours, at the same time it is possible to make favorable purchases and still to see some ancient buildings. Other type of short trips - visit of an opera performance or circus, plus spending the night in hotel and a sightseeing tour. In Scandinavia and Britain it is accepted to travel around water to other country for one day (for example, from Stockholm to Copenhagen, Hamburg, Riga, Tallinn, Helsinki and back). There are also cruises for day or for days with an exit in neutral waters so for parents there are possible purchases of tax free, and for children - all entertainments by the ship: in a nursery there is a sea of balls, hills, animated films, Nintendo, a coloring, competitions of drawings, focuses, a make-up, gaming machines, under the leadership of tutors competitions to prizes are held. At those who live on the bank of the Mediterranean Sea cruises along its coast or visit of islands are accepted. Trips across the Caribbean Sea or across the Hawaiian Islands became frequent: these types of rest became much cheaper and more available to any class - except for the unemployed. By the way, many modern grandmothers and grandfathers who in usual time live separately and participate in affairs of a family a little, sometimes take with themselves in trips grandsons at least once a year, and all are satisfied.

In many western countries to the warm sea go to trips abroad on only one - two weeks (some manage to carry out a half of term in one resort, and a half - on another). Almost there do not go Italians anywhere, and Spaniards and Portuguese prefer to go to the countries where speak their native language. It is considered that it is more useful to go to Egypt, to the Canary Islands, to Miami or to India in the winter: for Christmas or ski holiday - if the child goes to school. If the child of preschool age and work of parents does not depend on a season - then when cheaper and there are favorable offers. In a family several children are frequent, and then the general schedule adapts to the school student. In Germany the educational schedule is arranged so that in all lands vacation of school students and students is carried out at different times. Thus try to avoid traffic jams on which go to holiday on private cars, and also chaoses in resorts. In general, try to go on the North in the summer (to Iceland, Norway, Denmark), in February - March - on ski resorts (to Austria, Switzerland, Finland), in the winter - to the warm countries, late spring and in the early fall - to survey trips with visit of sights.

Australia and South America, and in some of the African countries become gradually “closer“ (for example, Kenya, Uganda, Namibia) considers for itself obligatory to visit progressively conceiving representative of the Western world. Acquaintance to such countries is especially important for children: they begin to understand that they lead exclusive life that they can learn a lot of things in other places of the globe that there is a sense in trying to behave well and to travel with parents, and then and independently worldwide. They stop being concentrated on themselves and the claims, understand that there are people who should be helped. They understand how it is good to become the doctor, the teacher, the builder, the driver to be to rather useful people.
