Last year our blog featured an article on keeping the love alive in your relationship – Valentine’s Day as a Mature Couple. This year, we are exploring Five Ways to Connect with your teen this Valentine’s Day.
It is not easy to foster engagement and connection with our teens and young adults. Between the preoccupation with their phones, and keeping up with the latest social media craze (Tik Tok anyone?) most of the time we feel like they really don’t want us around. Sure, they need us to get them from point A to point B (until they have a car of their own) and make sure they are fed, but otherwise, we are left to try and figure out the best way to be a part of their world. So, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we have come up with a few fun ideas on ways to connect with your teen.
January brings all things healthy and virtuous to the forefront – so we are doing our part with three hormone balancing smoothies to kick off the new year.
It seems we are programmed to think about a healthy start to the new year – goals and or resolutions are made and promises to eat more greens and add healthy new items to our diets get added to our “to-do” list.
In that vein, as we age we are also fighting our hormones and dealing with the onset of menopause in addition to dealing with our teens fighting their own hormonal battles 🙂
