As I was browsing the internet today I saw an article about the financial pressure faced by parents in Canada as their children begin a 60 day school break, The article was by Kim Fox and can be seen in full at http://bit.ly/iii0Hf
Here is an extract:
Today Canadian kids are celebrating the start of more than 60 days of freedom with the last day of school. But parents may not be as eager for the two-month break. They can feel pressured to fill their children’s days with activities to keep them engaged and learning.
Summer activity costs can quickly add up. A week at overnight camp is about $700, while a day camp checks in at around $300. Sports teams fees, music lessons, tutoring sessions and family vacations can break a well-meaning parent’s budget.
Wow $700 for a week and the children have 8 weeks and most families have more than 1 child. It is hardly surprising that with these costs some families feel they can’t also afford to take a family vacation.
But we all know how vital it is for a family to be able to take a break and spend time together. These are the times that build family unity and create memories that will last for the rest of your children’s lives.
