This weekend for example, my hubby and son left this morning for a camping/fishing trip and they won't return until late Sunday. They really need the one-on-one time to reconnect as things have been a bit strained between the two of them. I know they'll have a great time, they always do, year after year.
So while they are gone, my daughter and I will have our one-on-one time. We have agreed not to allow outside distractions interfere with our time together. She was invited by friends to go bowling this Saturday, but she declined. Told her pals, that this was the special weekend that she spends with mom only and was looking forward to it. Her friends tried to coerce her into coming and bringing me along. I enjoy her friends, but quite honestly. . .no thanks, LOL! She stood steadfast in her decision to just hang with mom. What a kid!
How often do you carve out one-on-one time with your teen(s)?
Do you both enjoy it or do you feel that your teen does it because they are afraid of hurting your feelings if told no?
What do you normally do during these times?
