Parents take holiday without the kids

More and more parents in Denmark are going on holiday without their kids. According to a survey by the Danish union of childhood and youth educators, Børne- og Ungdomspædagogernes Landsforbund (BUPL), 80 percent of education leaders have experienced that parents of children aged 0-5 go on holiday without their kids. That figure is 60 percent when the kids are between 6 and 14.
