Empathy for others is a trait that must be learned -- and parents are the best people to teach it. Volunteering together is an excellent way to increase your child's social and emotional growth while spending quality time together.
With gas prices likely to hit $4 a gallon, airfares running 15 percent higher than last year, and hotels hiking their room rates by 7 percent, you may not be ready to spring for that big summer vacation. But even if you don't go away, great summer day trips can be fun and memorable -- with far less hassle and expense.
No matter where you live, there's likely to be a small theme park or festival within two hours of home that will give your family a taste of adventure. Here are some local attractions around the U.S. -- just a sampling of what awaits your family this summer.
Small Theme Parks The rides may not be as thrilling as the big-name parks, but what you'll save on admission certainly is. At small amusement parks like Land of Make Believe in Hope, N.J., and Dixie Landin' in Baton Rouge, La., you'll pay half to one-third of what you'd spend for admission at Six Flags, Universal Studios or Disney World, which can run anywhere from $52 to $82. For small parks near you, visit Amusement-Parks.FindTheBest.com. Here are a few of our favorite picks:
Land of Make Believe, Hope, N.J. (Star attraction: Pirate's Cove ride)
Lake Compounce, Bristol, Conn. (Star attraction: Zoomerang rollercoaster)
Kennywood Amusement Park, West Mifflin, Penn. (Star attraction: Thunderbolt rollercoaster)
Castle Park, Riverside, Calif. (Star attraction: New Screamin' Demon spinning rollercoaster)
