Best Activity To Do With Your Parents

Dining out

It really is the best solution. You and your parents are unlikely to enjoy the same theatre, music and cinema, but food is a good bet. Maybe, if you’re lucky, they’ll also pay. Plus, being in a public space provides great opportunities to spring on them that new business venture you’re about to embark on that’s looking for a couple of key investors, or to introduce your polypartners, or mention that illegitimate daughter you just found out about. Your hair-trigger father is less likely to blow a gasket in front of people and your hyperventilating mother can go ahead and order a bottle of wine. For herself.
