So said Hans Christian Anderson. Do you think you have to have a lot of money to travel? No, you can start with other cities that can be reached even by train. Each city is good, unique, mysterious, but in its own way.

Start, for example, with the cities of the Golden ring of Russia. This is a famous route of 8 cities: Sergiev Posad-Pereslavl-Zalessky – Rostov Veliky-Yaroslavl-Kostroma-Ivanovo-Suzdal-Vladimir.
Or maybe a camp?

If you are interested in something, you can try and find a favorite camp for yourself, where you will not only relax, but also gain or strengthen your knowledge of what you are interested in.
Tips for parents – how to help your child spend the summer holidays with benefits?
Teenagers, transition age, hormones, youthful maximalism. But you were like that, parents. Isn’t it? Yes, there was a different time, there was a different attitude to everything.
How can parents help their teenage children spend their summer holidays usefully?
Here are some recommendations:
Talk to your child. About his interests, because sometimes there is not enough time for heart-to-heart conversations. Understand what is interesting to your child, so it will be easier to find something to do, or go in search of the same together.
Do something together. It is clear that you found, recorded and sent, for example, to some courses. But go to them together! A teenager will be happy to go somewhere with you.
Take the initiative in their own hands! That is, go and search with your child for what he likes, you will not only get closer, but You and your child will learn a lot of new things that will never harm him. For that you will know that something is definitely not his activity. Unfortunately, we are often quite lazy… and if our parents keep us company in finding ourselves, it will be very nice.
Listen to what your teen is saying and get closer. It is not necessary to blame problems in relations with them and misunderstandings on ” transition age”, which “will pass later”. Talk, tell about your experience in some area, so it will be easier for the teenager, and your relationship will become closer. The child will trust you more, knowing that they will find support in you. And most importantly-let’s understand that you respect the choice and opinion of your child.
