Every parent who has a good relationship with their children will always have to buck the trend of the sleepover at one time or another. These youngsters need a close group of friends early on in their lives, and that can’t happen if they just have ‘school’ friends. School friends are the types of kids that you only met and hung out with while in school, but when you were outside, they weren’t a part of your life. That’s why it’s good to help your kids bridge that gap and not feel lonely outside of their normal school hours. It’s also great bonding for the kids as they’re growing up; especially in this day and age where technology has accelerated growing up. And here comes the crunch time, will you be the boring don’t-really-care parents and just let them do whatever they want? Or maybe you can make an effort and think of some things they would like to do while their responsibility?
Speed and competition
In the UK there’s always been a fiery passion for Formula One and other motorsport racing. Of all the different nationalities of drivers that have won championships, the United Kingdom stands with the most drivers achieving the title. In fact, Formula One teams are packed to the gills with British engineers and technicians. So when it comes to karting, there’s no doubt that the one place for young boys to go have fun is going to be the track. Just to be on the safe side, don’t go for the outdoor karting companies because they’re focus is more an advanced driver. Your child and their friends who are in your custody must remain safe at all times. So indoor karting it is, and it’s by far the easiest to learn, and the tracks are all safe too. Prices for children are always going to be competitive and not aimed at fleecing your pockets.
Stopping the thief
One the greatest parts of childhood are the times when you all got together and told ghost stories in the dark. It’s was a mixture of feeling safe because you had your friends around you but since it was dark and quiet, you felt a little uneasy. There’s a real-life adventure game that mixes in these two elements but with one extra of teamwork. The Escape Room has a puzzle-solving adventure that has a theme of stopping an art thief. Your child and their friends are playing the role of former art thieves that have been hired by a wealthy art museum to track down an active art thief. They break into his home, and they have to quickly piece together clues and riddles to find out where he’s hiding the incredibly valuable art. They may be ‘trapped’ in a room with little light as the task is set at nighttime, but don’t worry because they’re safe at all times. Anyone can leave the specialised rooms at anytime they want. There is a battle against the clock however so focusing on teamwork will get them the win!
Some parents just give their children a time curfew for when they should get back home and let them go off to play aimlessly. But when your children grow older, they will remember the times you put in the hours and made an effort to make their time with their friends enjoyable.
