Parenting Teens Made Easy With Quality Time

Everyone seems to live in fear of parenting teens. What will {or won’t!} your teenager do next?! Don’t be too harsh, teens need love too–maybe even more than you {or they} realize. In order to help spread the love to our double-digit progeny, the Divas have created an amazing pack of quality time aids to help you with parenting your teen! This way you and your teen get some time set aside to reconnect and strengthen the parent-teen relationship they will need to lean on when times are rough. And hey, by spending time with your teenager you might even learn a few things about your little mystery who stopped talking to you on the eve of their 13th birthday…

Time With Your Teens is a great way to improve your parent teen relationship. #ParentingTeens #SpendingTimeWithYourTeen

It is so easy to get distracted by your teens’ schedule, homework, and activities that good quality time between you and them is rare. Sure you spend a lot of time with your co-pilot as you run around to all their activities, but chatting about how good Chick-Fil-A nuggets are may not last forever. We have a solution for you! The Divas are all about date night, and we want to extend it to your teenagers. Parenting teens requires making intentional time to have fun and enjoy bonding activities that will help you grow closer and enjoy each other’s company.

Planning & Preparation

Plan how to improve parenting your teen with this date night planner.

A successful relationship takes work and preparation–this is true in both marriage and with parenting teens. Plan your date nights out with your teen with our handy preparation materials. There’s a date night rule “contract” that is just cute enough to pop up on the fridge for a good reminder. With the calendar, you can plan each month’s date and display it all year long to keep the excitement going about spending time with your teen.

Parent teen relationships improve with clear date night expectations.

Survey and Bucket Lists

Survey your teen to see how to improve your parent-teen relationship.

Part of a good date night is buy-in from both parties. In order to make this happen with your teen you are going to want them to WANT to be there. Our survey will help you determine which day and time works best for both of you, as well as to which activities each of you gravitate. There’s even a suggestion list for dates that require no prep, but are still lots of fun. {A lifesaver when parenting teens!} From that list and your survey you can each fill out your bucket list and plan your 12 dates {Who says you have to end at 12?!}!
