Don’t just schedule the entire itinerary for them, ask them where they’d like to go and what they would like to do. They might have somewhere in mind they’ve always dreamed of going, or have found a hidden gem whilst scrolling on Instagram.
Take them somewhere they’ve never been before, somewhere exciting that will build anticipation and give them bragging rights in the school playground.
While they’re young and have no worries about work, retirement, or the struggles of adulthood – give them fond memories to look back on in years to come. They won’t stay young forever, so help them to enjoy this period of their life.
Whether your budget is large or small, you are going to need more room with teenagers, and seriously, separate rooms.
Nothing bores a teen more than watching everyone else have fun without you, watching your younger brothers or sisters enjoy activities that you’re not invited to because you’re over 12.
