The two words parents fear most during the summer are probably “I’m bored.” School vacation boredom can set in quickly — a National Citizen Service survey found that teens run out of activities just 18 days into summer break. What’s a busy parent to do with a houseful of restless kids? Your best bet might be to turn the tables and challenge your teen to an activity that will help them learn and grow. There are opportunities everywhere to stave off boredom. Put your faith in your teen, and let them stretch their wings. They’ll learn self-reliance and resourcefulness in the process, and they might even discover an unknown passion. Encourage your teen to get involved in the community, test out their dream job, or check out local history. Here are a few ways you can get them started. DECLARE INDEPENDENCE DAY Your teen craves more independence, so why not give it to them? Assign them a task for the day — say, getting the groceries — and the tools they need to complete it (cash and a grocery list). Let them fulfill their desire to be independent while helping you out! By entrusting them with these duties, you’ll demonstrate your faith in them, and they’ll gain confidence by completing their task. DEVELOP A GREEN THUMB Do you live near a local farm or community garden? This might be an opportunity for your kids to give back to the community while learning more about where food comes from and how it’s grown. They’ll put some of their energy to good use as they help weed and harvest crops. Encourage them to reach out and get involved. Getting in touch with their green thumb can be a rewarding experience.
