Not every child can be the next all-star linebacker, and that’s a good thing. Some children either have limited physical ability, are sensitive, or just prefer to do things alone. Sometimes your child has from a behavioural or physiological disorder such as autism or aspergers, and you’d like to help get them active doing a positive activity of some sort, but you’re not sure what.
There are going to be some people that read our next statement and totally get what we are talking about. The statement is this, “the older we get the younger we feel.” We can’t really explain it but while growing old is inevitable, it is becoming clearer and clearer that growing up is optional, and with each passing year, we’re more determined than ever to start ticking off bucket list entries.

If you’re an office worker, or just spend the greater part of your day indoors, it’s easy to feel the yearning for an outdoor adventure. Sometimes this can come to a head where you feel the need to escape your modern life with all its comforts and amenities. There’s no need to take drastic action, as a simple few trips out with a good friend can reunite you with the great outdoors and allow you to meet mother nature herself.
When your son was younger, he thought you were Superman. He hung off your every word, and boasted to all of his friends about how great you were. But now he’s getting older, you might be starting to drift apart. When you take him to school he’ll get you to drop him off down the road so you don’t embarrass him. It won’t be like this forever, and once he’s an adult, your relationship will improve, though he won’t think your word is gospel anymore. Those years in between can be tough and it might feel like you’re losing him, but don’t worry. You could try winning him round with a gift, but spending time together is better. Even though he doesn’t want to admit it, he does still enjoy your company. Here are a few ideas for father-son outings you can take him on, for a bit of quality bonding time.
There’s a real difference between traveling and vacationing, as pretentious as that may sound. Both terms can be interpreted rather vaguely, I suppose, but whilst a vacation is usually intended for relaxation, traveling is more of an experience which keeps you on the move. Some travelers may see themselves more as sightseers, whilst others may view themselves more as adventurers. Whatever the case may be for you, it all means nothing if you don’t have the funds to feed your traveling addiction.
