I’m the mother of 3 teenagers right now and it’s non-stop for me. As the kids have gotten older time with them one on one has become less and less because they have full lives, too. I’m always looking for things to do with teenagers because when I do get that time with them I want it to be fun and I want it to be special.
Things To Do with Teenagers
Everyone used to tell me that in the blink of an eye my kids would be teenagers and I never (ever) believed them. And then – of course – in the blink of an eye my William, Alex and Ben are TEENS!I honestly don’t know where the time went. It was here and then gone! It’s very bittersweet for me.
I miss the little boys who used to be my shadows. They always used to love being right there next to me and though they still don’t mind being with their mom, I know it’s important to find things to do with teenagers that we all will enjoy and love.
In this day and age teenagers are always connected to their devices. It’s crazy to see that phones and texting have taken over actual conversation, but it’s true. It’s just important to find things to do with teenagers that will make them laugh and talk and feel included.
Are you ready for 101 things to do with teenagers?
I sat down and asked my sons what they’d want to do with me and then I thought about things I’d want to do with them, too! I’m all about finding FUN things to do with teenagers and making sure there’s actually something that we’re doing. I don’t just want to sit and stare, I want to make sure there’s some fun being had with each other!
I tried to make sure I stayed “current” with some of trends going on, too. I think it’s important to keep in mind that kids are kids and there are things they love to do. It’s important to make sure we bridge the gap and find things that we can all do together. When it comes to things to do with teenagers this is a laundry list, not everything will work for you and your teen.
Find what you feel will work and have some fun with them!
