Caravanning 'perfect' for those with older children
Simple Caravan Insurance@ 12:00 AM
Parents with pre-teen children - those aged between nine and 12 years old - wondering how best to tear their youngsters away from their video games might like to consider purchasing insurance for caravans and hitting the open road.
According to child development expert and author of Detoxing Childhood Sue Palmer, speaking to the Sun, caravanning, camping and days out in the country are "great" when it comes to allowing families to bond as kids grow up.
"Outdoor adventure" is, she observed, "the best way to lure pre-teens away from the computer and keep their bodies and brains active".
Ms Palmer recommended heading to goingwild.net for some inspiration as to what to get up to while away, with pursuits such as making a fire, building shelters, foraging for food and carving catapults all receiving a mention.
Taking a trip to the Isle of Wight could also be perfect for families, with the Northern Echo recently reporting that Thorness Bay caravan site puts on daily activities such as pantomimes, treasure hunts and magic schools.
