There are so many tragic events with teenagers these days and a gazillion debates going on about gun control and mental health, etc. I want NO part of the politics or debates.
I think we just need to be present in our kids lives. Take the time, grab a smoothie or lunch with them, put down the electronics and TALK. Make family dinners important. Tell them they are worthy. BE PRESENT.
I have taken the time this week to be alone and talk with my kids; the older ones especially.
Do you have dates with your kids?
Make family time important?
