We have all been there – we have planned a lovely family walk, the picnic is packed, the waterproofs and wellies are in the car, the parents are optimistically excited and then there are the children… tears, tantrums and quite honestly terrible behaviour! What to do?
Please don’t look at my Instagram, my walks, my family life and think ‘I couldn’t do that’ or ‘my children wouldn’t go that far like hers do’ because honestly even for me it is often not easy to get the children to be as enthusiastic about the walks as I am! In fact sometimes I’m not even enthusiastic about them! But one thing I can honestly say is that once we get back to our car we ALWAYS feel so much happier for doing it – even if everyone had been close to tears at some point ?
