This is the season for graduations, parties and all kinds of end of the school year activities. For many summer has already started or is at least within grasp.
I have been thinking about you and I want you to know that I have your back. I have a great blog post for you this week that is chock full of good ideas and resources.
You may be worried about your son sleeping in ridiculously late, playing video games until his eyes burn and generally wasting his summer. Maybe you are worried about your son being out all day hanging out with friends that you don’t know.
You might be concerned that your son will sit at home all summer, bored and irritable with no social plans at all. Whatever your particular challenges are this summer here are some ways to avoid a bummer summer with your teenager.
Find some creative Ideas:
Sometimes it really helps to have some good sources for creative ideas on what to do over the summer vacation. Maybe your teen can try something new that he has never considered.
Put him to work:
Gaining job skills and earning money is a great way for teens to spend their summer. Some are more motivated than others. You may be able to provide some financial incentive for your son to do some work around the house or in the yard. If he is old enough he can look for a part-time job.
It’s not too late to sign up for camp:
There are some amazing camps available for teens, both locally and out of the area. You may have planned ahead and have things all set up or you may need to take some action now. Take a look at these local options and wherever you are located you can find some great ideas just by searching Google.
I hope this has been helpful. Let me know if there is any way I can support you or a teenager that you care about.
