Family trips need not be expensive. Neither should they always be long and far away trips. More so, time spent away from the hustle and bustle of life need not be with the entire family. One good idea would be to spend time alone with a child, to make time for bonding between parent and child.
If you are a mom and you have a daughter – in her teens, especially – you might want to consider going away on a spa weekend. These days, it is quite easy to book a relaxing weekend or even just a day at a spa resort. Even if you live in the city, finding a spa for mom and daughter is an easy thing to do.
Why would you want to spend a weekend at the spa with your daughter? For one, I cannot imagine a more relaxing time than being alone with your daughter just lounging around at a spa resort. Well, actually, a beach would be nice also. At a spa, however, you can indulge yourselves in hours-long of massages and other relaxing treatments. In addition to that, spa resorts also usually offer packages which include health treatments and healthy food. The ambiance is very serene and will certainly drain away the stresses and tensions of your every day lives. Sometimes, the simple change in atmosphere makes for better bonding moments.
If you have not tried this out yet, you should take a look at the available spas in your area. They should not be that expensive and you do not have to travel far for that relaxing day with your daughter. Trust me, you will not regret spending time at a spa resort. In fact, you would probably come back for more.
