Travel, even small one-day, strengthen the relations, rally a family, develop also children and adults. My acquaintances have one secret: when the working mother and the father feel that they were tired at work, began to hate life and to break on children, they in the day off go in the morning to a trip to some nearby located city, the ancient estate to Moscow area or go to park, the museum or theater together. Enriched with impressions, come back in the evening, tired, but happy. Day passed not for nothing, they perfectly spent time, and the good mood, as we know, considerably adds vital forces and allows to cope with daily stresses and fatigue.
