I am a single mom raising 2 boys and a girl on my own. Let me tell you a little history on myself, I come from a family of four (my parents and 1 sister) my sister and I are not at all close infact the only reason we ever talk really is about my kids. My father really had nothing to do with his family and my mother only speaks to her mother and 1 of her 5 siblings. Okay so now my problem... if you didn't notice there is a pattern of our family not being close at all. Now that I have children( ages 4, 6, and 9) I want them to be close to each other. We have to stick together... and if God forbid something happen to me I want them to know they will always have each other to make it though. My youngest two get along for the most part and are alot alike, my oldest on the other hand was raised for the first year by my parents (long story) he has lived with me for the last 8 years and we still struggle with the daily I hate my brother I hate my sister... and so on. I wondered if anyone had any advice on how to get my kids to be closer... and how do I keep a close relationship with them?

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
