It can be easy to do. Our teens act like they’re self-sustaining. They don’t say much when they’re home, but did you ever think they’re saying things like fifteen-year-old Elizabeth? “My parents sometimes give some extra time to my younger siblings. Sometimes I want to connect more with my parents and have extra time with them by myself.” When we’re dealing with toddlers and elementary aged kiddos we can fail to realize we’re losing touch with our teens! It’s important to spend one on one time with them because they’re only going to be around a few short more years. What then? Are we being proactive? Teaching them budgeting, car maintenance, cooking skills, spiritual disciplines and more that’s going to help form them. Make a date with your teen today.
