Why You Shouldn’t Feel Guilty About Sharing an Adult Weekend Away from Your Children

February 19, 2021 4:02 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

You love your kids—but sharing every moment with them isn’t healthy for any of you. Between parental responsibilities, enjoying your children and the societal shaming that comes with getting away for a bit, you might not feel comfortable spending an adult weekend away from home. However, that BDSM weekend getaway might just be the best decision you’ve made for your family all year. Here’s why.

Get closer to your partner

Modeling healthy relationships is important for your children’s development, even if they don’t need to know what their parents are really doing behind closed doors. It’s also important for you as a couple. As wonderful as children can be, they’re only part of a full and healthy life—not the be-all, end-all. Dirty diapers, virtual schooling, playdates and bedtime battles come with the territory, but they can also sap the romance and passion from your relationship.

Taking a weekend away from your kids gives you the opportunity to spend time with your partner as adults. It’ll remind you why you fell in love with each other in the first place—without the possibility of coming out of the bedroom to find your toddler coloring on the walls. Instead, you and your partner will be the ones who feel like kids (or at least teenagers) again.

Relieve stress

Being an adult is stressful. Being a parent just adds to your responsibilities and obligations. Taking a weekend away—especially a BDSM vacation—is a great way to relieve stress. No one can do it all, all day, every day, ad infinitum. Taking a break from work, your children and your home life is a smart way to relieve stress.

On top of that, studies have shown that BDSM can relieve stress. Whether it’s a regular part of your lifestyle or you’re ready to try something new, getting away for the weekend is a stress reliever in and of itself. When you’re less stressed, you’re a better parent—you have more tolerance for the ups and downs parenthood has to offer.

Enjoy some adult conversation (and other activities)

Discussing the storytelling intricacies of Peppa Pig and Bob the Builder might be highbrow conversation for your little ones, but most adults crave adult conversation (if not other activities) after a while. A lot of parents report feelings of intense loneliness when they lack adult interaction—and that’s not something that will help you deal with the challenges of parenting.

Getting away for a weekend is a great way to reconnect with your partner, and enjoy some adults-only time. You’ll come back feeling refreshed.

Help your kids build independence

Finally, getting away for the weekend is good for your kids, too. Teaching them to be independent is one of your most important jobs as a parent, and this way, they’ll learn to cope without having you on hand 24/7.
