Talk about them up-front, and ensure everyone gets some of what they want, some of the time.
2. Adult time-outs
Give each adult a break (or breaks) so they can explore the things they want to do.
Remain true to your own style. Children can benefit from experiencing different parenting techniques, but don’t start adopting standards that aren’t your own – the kids will only get confused.
4. Boredom and teens
It’s very important to keep teens busy – an idle teen can be problematic. Make sure there are plenty of things to do and see. You don’t want them loafing around and getting up to mischief.
5. Family time
Have days when you head off and do things separately to the other family. But give them fair notice, and encourage them to do the same so they don’t feel they’re being rejected.
6. Next holiday
Not every holiday should be shared – family rituals need to have a chance to grow, and holiday time is a great time for this to happen.
