While children today are brought up in theme park culture, skiing will show them a different side of life.
They will learn many life lessons which one cannot learn otherwise.
For example, they will learn to have fun together with all members of the family.
Parents will enjoy seeing their children learn a new sport.
Children will learn that they can have fun with parents also.
Children will learn discipline when they are learning this new sport.
They will learn to abide by the rules and, in turn, they will be more obedient.
If the snow and cold are new to them, they will look up to you for guidance and security in a new environment.
Also, they do not tend to wander off like they do in theme and amusement parks.
This is one holiday where the family sticks together.
Every member tends to look to the family for entertainment rather than going off on their own.
Everyone, right from the old to the young, can ski or learn to ski.
One does not have to go to the expert level slopes.
The beginner level slopes will give them as much fun and perhaps even more because one is not trying to compete with the other.
Also, when it is too cold they can stay in one place all snug and warm and appreciating the closeness of a family unit.
If there is a skiing resort close to your place, make it your regular holiday destination.
