Benefits Of Spending Quality Time With Your Teen


As a parent, at times, you may have felt that once your child turned a teen, she has become more independent and doesn't spend as much time with you as she used to previously. 

But, why do teens want to remain aloof?

There are many reasons, with the most common one being difference of opinion. However, there are also teens who are very close to their parents and share everything with them.

So, why does this happen?

Teens and parents bonding well is usually the result of a close parent–child relationship. Spending quality time with your teen would go a long way in helping you establish a close bond with her. This is important because, not only would it help you understand your teen better, but also give the opportunity to guide your child in the right direction.
