It might even seem half-baked or impossible, but when you and your teen invest in a project together, you are bound to reap rewards.

  1. Thanks for sharing. While I don’t have teens yet, I can already guess I’m going to be seeking out every opportunity to spend more time with them when they’re older!

  2. Such a lovely post and I heartily agree that spending time with your teens is so important. Thanks for sharing with us at #AnythingGoes

  3. Thank you, Sarah! I’m passing on your kind words to the guest author who wrote the piece (Michelle of SoulyRested.com). And I look forward to seeing you at Wednesday’s launch (I sent you the invite earlier today)!

  4. Hi Branson! Yes, I’m with you… I have to fight that whiny voice too sometimes! I will add this post to the link-up! Thanks you!

  5. I absolutely adore this! I am trying to get into the habit of saying “yes” now so that it comes easier later, but already I get the whining voice in my head as well! I appreciate your wisdom, and this is so encouraging to me as someone just starting out in homeschooling (although this applies to all families… not just homeschoolers!) Feel free to link up with the #ParentTeacherMeetUp this week! 🙂 http://branson365.blogspot.com/2015/10/parentteachermeetup-week-7.html
