No matter how tall or knowledgeable he will ever become, he will always be your child……meant to be cherished, reprimanded when required, pampered…………….
Be grateful he chooses to be with you in his leisure time, it’s the best way he can appreciate you…
Make memories, focus on him, enjoy the moments together
Do what he wants, do what you want, make it enjoyable
Teenagers have a unique quality..they ‘switch off’ when you lecture to them , but get alert when you tell them how you goofed up in your life, and take lessons from your blunders without realizing it !!!!!
Smile, hug, joke, eat, dance, interact………..each moment will eventually be locked into your heart and mind forever, make sure it’s the memories you all want.
Relax, you are doing something amazing….if he returns to you and wants to spend time with you, Remember studies and the curriculum are tough, he is sleep deprived, underfed and a teen…….connect, have fun, life is too short to deliver sermons to the one you treasure the most……
Do not tell him how to ‘manage his time’…he’s doing that
No discussions about his friends….he will tell you if he wants to, on his own.
Remember…he is your child, and always will be, let him live his life, be there if he needs you….make your home a place he will rush to, because he wants to…..
And yes, you can yell at him (in jest) and annoy him…he expects it 🙂
