Every year while in the summer time I send our kids off to our parents house.
They care about spending time with their Grandparents but I suppose as all of us get older it’s become more of a challenge to get them out there.
When they were younger it was always fun for them to go see their Grandparents because they live in a rustic house. I don’t have any of the new conveniences that all of us have in our house. I want to send our kids out there because I suppose it gives them a reality check on how lucky they are to live the way that they do. Once I even noticed that when our kids got back they stopped complaining about little things care about they did before they left. One thing our parents don’t have that all of us do in our lake condo is a heating and cooling system. I have no central heating and A/C, and that’s where their condo has always been. I grew up without central air conditioning and it didn’t affect myself and others at all. My kids are pretty spoiled and I want them to see what it’s care about to live this way, and right before all of us ship them off they always complain about not being able to sleep because you’re so overheated without the air conditioning blasting on them. However, I suppose it’s a good lesson for them and I care about to provide them a dose of reality.
