Having Fun with Your Parent

I'm writing an article today about having fun with your teen. As a mom of teens, and someone who works with teens (and LOVE it!) this doesn't seem like a hard subject.

I love to hang out with my girls, and my son. I like to horseback ride with Melissa. I like to go out to eat with Ryan. I love to talk with Leslie.

But fun stuff? Maybe that's different than just hanging out.

Is it making cookies? Watching a movie? Hiking? Going through old pictures? Shopping? Playing ping pong, cards, or Deal or No Deal? Is it having a special night or day reserved just for fun?

What is fun for you? What is one thing you'd like to do with your parent (or parents) that would be fun to you?

I'd love to hear your opinion. In fact, I might even quote you in the article, and your opinion would help lots of other parents out there trying to figure out how to connect and have a great time.

Have I mentioned that you girls rock? You do.
