One Simple Way to Connect with Your Teenager

My body tenses as I approach my teenage son to discuss his plummeting English grade. “So what’s going on with your English class?” I ask.

“I don’t want to talk about it. It’s my grade and my life,” he retorts.

Tension has been running high. Sometimes higher than the international space station. Frowns and scowls have taken over his once handsome face. One day I adore him, the next I’m ready to strangle him and kick him out on his own.

A deep chasm seems to grow between us, with the rift growing wider each day.

Many parents I talk to experience this roller coaster ride with their teenagers. (Sometimes on a daily basis.)

I get it. I experience it too!

How to Connect with Your Teenager?

One day while scrolling through my news feed, an article about text message love-bombs flashed on my screen. That’s it! Teenagers need text message love-bombs too. This will help reconnect with them. 

No matter what teenagers do, it’s important they know how much they are loved. That they belong. That they are of value.

It was time to break out technology and speak the teenage love language.

(If you can’t beat’em, join’em. Right?)

Text message love-bombs simply take a few seconds. You can send a quick text message of love, encouragement or laughter to reconnect you with your teenager anytime of day (or night). Your messages might boost your teenager’s morale and help them feel reconnected to you.

Love-bombs help your relationship weather the stormy moments, including the hurricanes and typhoons.
