Let's face it, we're all living in a fast paced environment. Jobs that require much time, things to do, places to go. But does that mean parents can't spend time with their kids? Of course not! Well, that shouldn't be the case anyway. Living in the world is hard enough as it is nowadays. Kids of all ages need parents that care about them. Especially teens. The teen years are some of the hardest years anyone has to go through, believe me, I know. I'm still going through what's probably going to be one of the hardest times in my life right now. Teenagers are afraid. Afraid of making the wrong decisions, afraid of facing the future. This is a crazy time, mentally, emotionally, hormonally. Teens need their parents there as much as they need nutrition. Yea, it may seem like they're trying to push their parents away, but inside they really need their parents there for them.

They need their parents guidance and encouragement, their love and support. They want their parents to tell them how special they are to them and actually mean it, and not just by saying it actually SHOWING it. Family time can strengthen your family relationships, create a stronger bond with your children, and boost their self esteem. I mean, if you care about your children, finding the time to spend with them is worth it, don't you think?
