Keeping Teens Busy During the Summer

As the long summer days press on, time at home with the kids can wear on your nerves a bit. While there are plenty of activites to keep young kids busy, it can be a lot harder finding things for your teenager to do - especially if that teenager is too young to work and drive a car. This week, we'll explore some of the unique challenges we parents of young teens face during the summer months.

If anyone has any helpful ideas, don't hesitate to leave a comment.

Hi Theresa,

I like your new picture!

Keeping teens busy is always a challenge. My daughter used to have a couple of friends over and plan a picnic lunch - sometimes in the backyard or at a nearby lake beach park. Bike rides are always fun too - take along snacks and drinks. It was always a concern for me because I was working and wanted some assurances they would be safe in their activities.

We always encouraged more outside than inside time for them.
