    Re: Multiple Choice Question

    The technically correct answer is A, doing challenging outdoor activities. The reasoning is that activities like biking or playing softball promote something called 'flow,' which is the enjoyment you achieve when accomplishing a challenging task. Such an activity is not so challenging that it causes anxiety, but it isn't so easy that it promotes boredom.

    See why I have a problem with the answer not being having fun together at Disneyland? That's the most flow-ful activity I know!

    Disneyland is also a great conflict-resolver. Who can argue while having fun at the happiest place on earth?

    And the park also happens to be what I have most in common with my siblings, so that should satisfy the 'open communication' requirement.

    (I love how SparkyLD voted for participating in therapy, lol)


    If this question ends up on the final, I am SOOO going to bubble in the answer for DL!

    For sure, the Gumball Rally counts as a challenging outdoor activity!

    Re: Multiple Choice Question

    Well Disneyland can be pretty challenging! Plus you can actually talk to each other when standing in line, sitting together for meals, etc. IMO it can be better, or just as good as biking, or softball.
    And I also agree that Disneyland is very flow-ful!

    Re: Multiple Choice Question

    I think it really depends on the individual-no study can apply to everyone.

    I think that if everyone allows themselves a good time at the Happiest Place on Earth, then yes, it can bridge the gap because everyone is in a good mood and suddenly feels closer.

    If, on the other hand, you have a psycho dad who is pulling out his hair because of how much the trip costs and is running everyone around him ragged (of course any family member can do this), then it can easily be a disaster, too.

    Re: Multiple Choice Question

    For which class and text book is this for/from? Health class?

    I'd choose Disneyland, too. But if this question is from something like health class, I could understand why it would promote "outdoor activity."

    Re: Multiple Choice Question

    Well, i love Disneyland, more than anything.
    but unfortunately my family doesn't see what i see in it, and can be very grumpy and annoying/whiny while were there, which sucks alot, so I'd have to go with A.

    like one time when i wanted to ride the lily belle, and told my sister all about it and she just shot me down with a .."well thats dumb".

    Yup, it was for health/wellness class. Incidentally, I just took the final exam, and guess what - this exact question appeared!

    And do you know what I answered?
