It’s normal for teens to want time alone to think, listen to music, or talk on the phone. Try to give your child the privacy they need. On the other hand, let them know when family time is nonnegotiable, such as attending a sibling’s recital or helping to clean out the garage.

Use reality TV as a jumping off point for reading. If your teen loves cooking shows, pull out the cookbooks and have a family chili cook-off. If survival shows are more their speed, they might read survival guides and learn to recognize poisonous plants or navigate by the stars.
