I had a great lunch discussion today with one of our youth workers about Parents and their Teenagers.
One big thing we talked about was, are parents spend “quality time” with their student.
In a culture that is driven by money, businesses and prestige time is limited. Are we giving up time with our kids/teenagers so we can climb the “corporate” ladder or to play that round of Golf?
Teenagers love being given time. I challenge you to check your schedule, if you are a parent, and see what kind of time you are giving to your kid.
This is something I’m thinking of often as I work w/ teenagers and have 2 small children of my own.
