Summertime. Kids are out of school, and oftentimes, find themselves lounging around the house “bored.” Being bored in the summer seems like a common occurrence no matter the generation. What isn’t common however are the things that today’s teens have to deal with. Face it, we will never live the life that teens today live.

Cellphones and the problems that come with them, legalized recreational drugs, extreme bullying, depression, these are not things most of us thought about as a teenager yet today’s teens are blasted with it. Take time this summer and make sure your teen is receiving the correct information, let you as a caretaker start the conversation rather than social media. Be proactive.
