Reminder #138,563N: Strategies for Finding Alone Time

Instead of dragging the kids on an urban hike, give them a dollar and a bottle of water and a far off destination, preferably via a forest or creek.  Challenge them to bring back something to prove they took the prescribed route and to buy something to prove they arrived at their destination.  If the children bargain for more spending money, give it to them. Make coffee, sit on the porch with a book or a banjo or a pair of binoculars and hope they don't come back till afternoon.
