With back to school ads everywhere and Halloween costumes spotted at Costco…it can seem like we’re running out of summer already. So how do we make the most out of the time we have left?
A psychologist in England came up with a mathematical formula for the perfect family day out. Here are the seven ideal conditions, based on his formula:
1. Spending about four hours together. Kids only want to spend one or two hours with their parents, but parents want five or six. So, compromise.
2. Going to the beach, and then a fair or carnival.
3. Laughing 11 times.
4. Kissing your kids five times.
5. Hugging them six times.
6. Sunny weather.
7. No more than seven photos.
