When I got back home later that night, I really felt bad for my kids because I wasn’t able to even talk to them properly.
My daily life with my wife & kids goes something like this. After waking up for subah prayers at 4:30am, I then go to the mosque and pray with Umar & Abdullah. From then on, like a machine my wife and I get them ready for school & I prep for office. We do not have time to smile at each other; I go to office & kids will go to school.
I come home at around 8pm/9pm (if there’s no meeting at office) and by the time I’m home, the 3 eldest will be sleeping whilst youngest 2 are getting ready to sleep. I then pray on my own before hitting the sack.
When thinking this over, I felt ‘Alhamdulillah Allah is great & I am so blessed to see family; even though I can't spend time with them’. On observation, most people’s lives are somewhat similar, but some of them only see their families after a week, perhaps months or even years.
At the end of the day we do all of this for family & to keep our homes happy. Better (and relaxing) solution would be to spend your vacation in a place like Maldives. For me this is the one of the most relaxing destinations where you will have nothing, but a real family holiday.
I have been in the Maldives travel industry since 2006. It has been almost 8 years to date. As I always say, I love data: It will help you analyze, forecast, understand & will help you make strong decisions. As per my study for Maldives, about 60% are coming Maldives Resort for a family holiday. I trust my recommendation of the Maldives for family (like mine) to spend some quality time together.
I thought of sharing my personal thought about child friendly resorts as a parent; being in Maldives travel industry for so long, I hope I can definitely help you find the best resort for your family holiday. At the end of the trip what we are all looking for, is some quality time with our kids & of course with your sweetheart.
Maldives is one of the best destinations for couples who wants to have some quality time alone. The resorts with ‘kids’ club’ facilities will add a great opportunity for your kids to have a good experience. Do not settle for ‘kids’ club’ where they will just have some toys in a park or room.
As a parent I can advise you to look for a place where your kids will have some new experiences, such as water sports, external sports, cooking programs, green activities, kids swimming pool & etc. My kids are glued to their computers & iPad when we go on a trip. Ensure you do not allow them to bring technological gadgets to the resort. Let them spend some real time in the real world.
Here comes my experience in travel field; I just want to name the best 5 Kids Club where I would like to take my kids for a great experience in Maldives.
