Bridging the Generation Gap

The holidays typically include visits with extended family members, which most teens

will tell you they dread.

While you may be looking forward to seeing your siblings, parents or in-laws there is a strong probability your teens are not as excited about the visit.

They would much rather be hanging with friends or playing video games. You know, doing teen things, not hanging out with older people.

If you find this frustrating, think about it from your teen's point of view. They may not feel they have as much in common with your siblings or their grandparents as you do (remember, you are the link between those two generations!)

So how can we make this visit a better experience for both sides of the generation gap?
