It is a good idea to take children along on visit to a war memorial site. This would give you a good opportunity to educate the kids on the sacrifices made by the war heroes buried there. Without such lessons, it is easy for the kids to take the good lives they live for granted: not knowing that other people had to pay the ultimate price for them to enjoy such good lives. Furthermore, a visit to a war memorial site gives you an opportunity to teach the kids certain important life lessons. One of these is the lesson on the importance of peace, and how, in some instances, peace had to be preceded by war. This would then give you an entry point to yet another important lesson, on the relationship between peace, justice and war.
You need to confirm well in advance, to ensure that the war memorial site will actually be open on the day you will be visiting with kids. Nowadays, most of the war memorial sites have websites (or at least social media pages) where you can check the hours when the sites are open to the public. Even if you are online for something else, you can opt to spare a few minutes, to visit the war memorial site’s website/Facebook page, to see the hours when the site is open to the public for visits. Like if, for instance, you are online to take part in the dollar general survey, you can take a couple of minutes to visit the war memorial site’s website/Facebook page –to confirm the hours when it is open. This way, you’d get to avoid inconveniences on the day when you visit the site with the kids.
You need to prepare the kids for the visit to the war memorial site well in advance. You first of all need to tell them well in advance that you would be visiting a war memorial site on such and such a date. Then you need educate them on the etiquette expected of them.
You need to keep your visit to the war memorial site brief (if you are visiting with kids). Otherwise the kids, given their short concentration spans, will start getting distracted.
