Articles, Information and Resources for Parents of Tweens, Teens and Young Adults

One more idea on keeping the teens busy this summer. Let them plan a party for their friends and put the entire thing together. That means they should clean the house in preparation for the big day. They should pick a theme for the party, then plan and shop for the food and decorations. Make sure they stay within a given budget too. They will appreciate you so much more when they discover how much effort and energy went into all those birthday parties you gave them. And they will feel proud of themselves for planning and executing their own party all by themselves!
I'm a freelance writer with a background in technical writing, though I have recently discovered a passion for writing fiction. I am busy at work on a mystery - nearly complete, a romance - well under way, and a children's book - in the brainstorming phase.
