I was the same at her age - when i was younger my parents had a tourer caravan but I was never one to 'make friends' with other kids on the site, i was happy to go along with my parents as well. Think coz I am an only child so i wasnt used to having other kids around all the time!

He won't be on many more with u, so let him throw a few ideas out. As someone said, maybe hit a few cities in USA.
I'd guess you've never cruised.
I cruised with my family as a teen and there was far more to do (and far more freedom for teens) onboard than in a resort.

exactly!

I think my son is like this as an only child.

He loves playing online but that allows him to disconnect when he wants, I keep telling him that online disconnects are not the same as real life where you can't just turn off the people or remove the headphones and stop listening.

Sometimes I worry about this but I suppose it's modern age and the time we live in. I have a great relationship with my son and he's very funny and open when I enter his room his friends online say hi and I know most of them.

I think he just misses his bedroom. As an avid cruiser I'm dying to book the next one and we have friends going May next year who are egging me on to book.

But i think you are all right and I should wait and see where he wants to visit for our May vacation...

Agree. Although the Disney cruises seem quite good but would those appeal to a 14yr old boy?

This is what I don't want at 14 but expect at 16.

TBH I wanted to holiday with my mates/girlfriend at 16-18 so can't blame them. I just hope when he gets into his 20s he wants to come with us again with girlfriend as well. (If he has one...)

He has said several times that we can go ourselves but his birthday is in the middle of the holiday no way am I missing my only son's birthday
