A spontaneous family vacation, towards the end of the school break, will not only help the kids start their school year more relaxed, but will also help the family bond and return home happier than ever. Here are all the social and developmental benefits that psychologists ascribe to a family vacation and how you can enjoy them in Tel Aviv.
A family vacation in Tel Aviv is perfect for parents and kids alike. But, apparently there are other reasons why you should book a hotel in Tel Aviv and enjoy some family time together. In fact, many people take their family vacation for granted and the awareness to its importance is nearly non-existent. Wondering if you should use these last days of the summer school break vacationing with your family in Tel Aviv? Here are a few reasons that will help you make up your mind.
Bringing Families Closer
The psychologist Susan Krauss, PhD, says that a family vacation strengthens the bonds and communication between family members, helps bring siblings closer and strengthens the connections between children and their parents. Vacations filled with activities and attractions strengthen positive ties even further and create shared memories that increase family identity and bonds them as a singular unit.
In Tel Aviv, you can enjoy numerous activities and attractions for the entire family that are within walking distance from your hotel. Escape rooms, bike tours and shows are only a few examples of that.
Learning About Each Other
Not many families are close enough to actually know each other and even those that are close can still learn surprising things about each other.
Psychologists say that a family vacation can help parents and kids get to know each other better. A vacation can allow parents to learn how their kids react to unusual situations, what their kids like and don’t like, what interests them and so on. Plus, kids also learn about their parents and in many cases, find out their parents are cooler than they thought.
Learning About the World
Many sociologists and psychologists believe that every time a family steps out of its neighborhood, town or country they get a better understanding of the world around them. A family vacation in a new city, such as Tel Aviv – the cultural hub of Israel, can expand the kids’ knowledge of different cultures. In fact, even strolling through Rothschild and Ben Gurion Avenue, as well as other streets, will allow your kids to gain knowledge about different lifestyles and the Israel society and its culture.
