3 Simple Criteria for Connecting with Your Teen or Young Adult

Teens and young adults can be tricky when it comes to getting them to do things with you. Through our Summer of Fun I’ve accidentally discovered, they do want to spend time with me, but the rules of engagement have changed and I’m the one who needs to change how I think and how I act in order to get them involved.

Summer of Fun – Day 8 – Creeking

Sometimes, we love putting on our old clothes, grabbing our water shoes, picking my camera up and heading down or upstream. It never gets old and it never looks the same twice!

Creeking is one of our all-time favorites things to do!

Did you enjoy walking through the park yesterday? Wasn’t it sooo relaxing? It was for us too! I’m glad you stopped in today. Do I have a story to tell you!

This is a double-header in that we did one activity during the day and one in the evening.

Summer of Fun – Day 5 – Water Balloon Hot Potato (a new take on an old game)

Today’s activity is a new spin on the old game Hot Potato. Do you remember playing that as a kid? I do, too! It’s HOT!  Going swimming or playing with water goes hand in hand with hot. That’s how we came up with this idea for a new twist on an old game. Come on in and see how to play!

Summer of Fun – Day 4 – Baking Together

For day 4, we’re jumping into the kitchen and baking together. I don’t know what it is about spending time in the kitchen with my kids, but it’s one of my all-time favorite things to do. Maybe it’s the way they interact with each other. Maybe it’s all the shenanigans going on. They are always giving each other snarky (in fun of course) comments and teasing each other. Whatever it is, it makes me smile and laugh every.single.time!!  One day they’re going to leave the nest and are going to need to know how to take care of themselves. So, cooking and baking skills are NOT a bad thing. Right? Right!
