Here are 5 top tips for you and your family…..
1. Try to sit down as a family to plan what you can do over the Summer.Get the children involved with thinking up low cost activities.
2. If you and your partner get into an argument,for example, in the car you’re going the wrong way, remember that children benefit from seeing conflict being resolved in a positive way. Sulking and silence are not helpul.
3. If you’re going away for the first time as a step family, it will probably feel very different for the children. Try to see it as a chance to create new family holiday traditions.
4. Talk as a couple before you go away about boundaries for your children – and keep a united front if they challenge you.
5.Try to find some time alone as a couple – not easy on a family holiday but even small snatches of time are helpful.
Enjoy it – you’re on holiday
