I can feel summer in the air!
Memorial Day, the unofficial start to summer, has come and gone. As the days grow longer and warmer, we also may start to feel anxious about what our children are doing with their free time. Here are a few tips from Parenting My Teen regarding some of the best ways to ease our stress and keep our kids safe over the next months:
- Establish a curfew for your teen, both day and night.
- Invite your teen's friends over for a Saturday barbeque. This will allow you to get to know who your teen hangs out with.
- If you are a working parent, ask your teen what he or she will be doing during the day. Inform your teen that permission is required before venturing out.
