A mum has revealed the reason why she rarely takes her eight-year-old on vacation – and claims she’s having a lot more fun without her.
TikTok user @hayleytravels_, who regularly posts about her travels, took to her social media account to clarify why she prefers to fly solo.
She explained: “Hey. I get a lot of questions about why I don’t take my 8 year old with me on all my vacations.
“Right, the quick answer is – I don’t want to. A holiday with children is nothing nice.
“Parents, I know you are lying. I know you lie on Facebook [when you say] ‘Create memories.'”
Hayley went on to say, “Beach vacation with kids — stop it, stop it!”
She then said that as a parent, you are too busy worrying about your child and their safety to fully relax.
She continued: “Can you have a drink? can you read a book No no.”
Speaking of city breaks, Hayley added: “I like going into a cathedral, I like eating pastries and sitting by the fountain.
“I like walking the old streets of an old town in Valencia or Madrid.”
However, she said her child’s tastes are understandably very different.
Hayley continued, “My son wants me to take a city break and find a swing set.”
After she posted the video, other moms commented on the post, saying they would “never leave their child to go on vacation,” like Hayley does.
However, the avid traveler responded, writing: “Imagine a world where fathers are equal parents. It exists. Raise the level.”
