3 Steps to a Budget-Friendly Vacation Your Family Will Love

Some of the best family memories happen on vacation. While some of the things you remember may not have been part of the original plan, they are often a result of being together on vacation. Every parent wants to create unforgettable moments for his or her family, but working within a budget can be challenging. Here are three tips for low-cost family fun on your next vacation.

With a little advance planning, you may be surprised how much you can afford. Creating an itinerary will help you budget and keep spending under control. Planning your vacation early will also allow you to shop around for package deals, sales, and lower fares. Plus, if you can be flexible about timing, you can take advantage of special and limited-time offers by setting up fare alerts for your favorite destinations. The best part is that by planning in advance and giving yourself plenty of time to save up for your trip, you may just be able to save enough for a special excursion or two that can then be complemented by other, lower-cost entertainment options such as parks and outdoor areas. read more

Four Ways to Give Your Teenager the Outlet They Need

Raising teenagers is a tough commitment. Social pressures, academic demands and biological changes make this period of life stressful for teens and their parents. It’s important for adolescents to find healthy outlets for their stress and to search for positive activities to fill their free time. This can help teens build meaningful relationships and avoid poor choices and low self-esteem. Here are four ways to help your teenager develop a passion for a positive activity.

Help Them Pursue the Arts

Visual, musical and theatrical arts can foster creativity and community while teaching discipline and focus. Look for local singing opportunities for teenagers by searching for after school groups and travel choirs. Enroll your teen in art lessons or let them take a class on a medium of their choice at a local art studio. Encourage them to audition for an upcoming production at your nearby community theater, or help them shadow an experienced pro to learn how to work behind the scenes. read more

The Reasons You Need Water Resistant Flooring

There are many options for flooring these days. Natural elements like wood and stone, concrete, ceramic tiles and laminate are a few of the many choices available. When you are ready to pick out your perfect flooring, there are a few things you should take into consideration that can determine whether you should pick one of the many water resistant flooring options.

Pools

If you have a pool in your backyard, you’ll want to consider not only the safety of your family and guests but the wear and tear to your floors. Wet feet on ceramic tile can turn into an unexpected skating event that could lead to injuries. Additionally, hardwoods are not the best choice for areas that get a lot of water. You’ll also want to think about the toll chlorine or saltwater could take on hardwoods. read more
