Teens and The Holiday Table
Does your family have a “Kid’s Table” for holiday dinners? After finally reaching the status of being a teen, it’s not uncommon to find yourself in a dilemma as to which seat you will choose. Make your table decision using your heart, and not your age.
Giving and Receiving Help
Whether we are teens or parents, there are times when we all need help. Although the holidays are not the only time we should give or ask for help, it’s a time when our to-do lists can be longer and stress levels can be higher. Giving and receiving help is a gratitude we can share.
Receiving and Giving Thanks
November is the month when many families acknowledge and celebrate Thanksgiving. However, giving thanks shouldn’t be assigned to one specific day or month. Also, the things we thank others for shouldn’t always be just the things that we can see and touch.
Gratitude Sharing For Teens and Parents
Gratitude has no age limit. When teens and parents share their gratitude lists, they will learn more about each other and also the things that are truly important to them. They might also be surprised about the gratitudes they both share.
Reading and Sharing Young Adult Books
Reading with your teen is a great way to spend time together and start conversations. It may also create an opportunity for questions. Don’t be afraid of boring or simple silly plots. If you haven't read a young adult book lately, you are in for a nice surprise.
