We are advising people to come to Relate now if they feel their relationship is coming under strain BEFORE children break up for the Summer Holidays so everyone can enjoy the holidays together.
Says Development Officer Veronica “The summer holidays are not far away – this can often be a tense time for families. Expectations are often unrealistic about how easy and happy the holidays will be.
Couples who are both working find they have to juggle their holiday allowance to cope with child care. Family members such as Grandparents, who often help out, might themselves be going away during the summer. This means that couples often get to see less of one another during the holiday period.
Families on low incomes find keeping children entertained and fed throughout the summer holidays can put further strain on the family budget. If all their friends are away on holiday there is more pressure to keep them entertained and busy.”
