Children and parents are brought closer together by having fun together. With this understanding, local BAPS chapters organize special family retreats and outings to help families play, eat, and, ultimately, stay together. These outings have informative parenting sessions for parents and instructional sessions for children. BAPS works on closing the generation gap by providing an environment where both parent and child enjoy each other’s tastes, likings, and hobbies. These outings let children and parents improve different facets of their relationship by learning to enjoy each other’s company.
