Ideas for weekends and vacations

Make the most of weekends and vacations when you have longer time to spend with your kids than during the work week.

  • Attend the kids sports and other interests (even if you don’t find some of it entertaining)
  • Cook a special meal once a week/month, eg a pancake breakfast
  • Take all of your allocated vacation time
