Setting Your Child Up For Success - Child Psychology, Development and Teaching Tips show

Summary: This can be a difficult topic, because many parents believe that their teenagers don't want to have fun with them! The reality is though, this is often not true.

We need to provide the opportunity for fun, but be mindful of the timing - for example, when teens have their friends over, or a huge pile of homework, is not the ideal time for hanging out with parents. Having fun with teenagers is important for your relationship, it creates great memories and enables everyone to take a break from the typical household pressures and demands.
