Pretend I haven't been parenting children for 18 years already. This is something I've never mastered.
You've got a 14 year old child. He's got a week of band camp coming up, but that's not till August. He's got taekwondo, but that's in the evening, a couple days a week. You don't mind if he sleeps in a couple days a week. You don't mind some mindless video game time. But that kind of thing needs to take up a small percentage of the day. You're a sahm. You want him to get together with friends regularly.
What would you suggest he do with his time?
I have some ideas but I want to hear yours first.
