Life Strategies for Teenagers

Whew! I feel like I have been through a whirlwind. One would think that during a stay at home lockdown I would get bored. Frankly, no! I have kept myself busy with writing, editing, creating art, and doing mindless activities. I did watch a Pink Floyd and Cher concert.

However, what are all of the teenagers up to these days

They may be used to the internet and doing things online, but they are not used to staying at home. This pandemic has to be hard on them because they are grounded so to speak. With that, they have feelings and questions. Why not spend this valuable time communicating with your teen or for that matter, all children. There is no time like the present to spend quality time with your teen.

For some parents the thought of have a heart-to-heart teen sounds frightful. Where do I begin? Today's author, Bukky Ekine-Ogunlana, and her book, "Life Strategies for Teenagers: Positive Parenting Tips and Understanding Teens for Better Communication and Happy Family" can help you out. Take a look.
