  • Why don't you ask him where he would like to go on vacation? Just don't tell him that you want quality time with him and bond. If you tell him that, then he won't want to go.

  • My son and I have been on several trips together. We spend a week in Florida every winter, and in the summer we camp near home. He's seldom bored. When we camp, there is hiking, swimming, nature programs, and just hanging out at the beach or the campsite. Cooking over an open fire takes time and is fun to do together. A couple of times, he has brought along a friend. In Florida, we alternate between the Orlando area and and the Gulf Coast. We've never run out of things for a mom and son to do there. When he was younger there was Disney and Universal. Now that he is older, there is the Space Center, Zoos, State Parks and the beach of course. The baseball teams have there spring training there, so we usually take in a game. I try to arrange a few times when aren't together and do things separately just to give us both a break. It's a lot more comfortable to get a place where we can prepare our own meals.
