As the parent of a teenager, you’ll be very aware of their mood swings and desire for independence. However, they will sometimes still want to spend some time with their parents. It’s a great idea to plan some days just for the two of you to remind you that you still enjoy each other’s company. Here are some ideas for teen-friendly activities.
A Day in Town
This is a great way to spend time together as you can easily share joy and excitement for spotting things you like. It might seem a bit shallow, but this is actually a great way to bond and a pretty fool-proof way to spend the day.
An Afternoon at the Theater
Whether you go for a big mainstream production or a more amateur performance, bonding over the special experience of watching a live show is great for people of any age. Depending on the timing you could enjoy lunch or dinner out to make the day feel even more exciting.
A Trip to a Local Gallery
It’s ideal if there are some fun and unique exhibitions on, but any kind of gallery should be entertaining enough. This will feel great for your teenager, as it feels like a very adult activity so you’re showing them that you see them as mature and sophisticated.
