Why I Love Teenagers Why I Love Teenagers

Why I Love Teenagers






I?ve been in and out of airports all month. First to Las Vegas to work on the flip house, then to Atlanta for the Haven Conference, then to Savannah to visit my brother?s family, and I just got back from Boise, Idaho late last night. It?s been a lot of traveling, it?s exhausting but I love it.
One of the most relaxing days I spent with my brother?s family. My nephews are 17 and 15 and my niece is 14. I love them so much. We spent a day roaming around Savannah and then spent an afternoon at Tybee Island, and it was one of the best days I?ve had all year.
I was thinking about it on the flight home, why was that day so enjoyable" Sure it?s nice to have a change of scenery and spend a day at the beach, but mostly it was hanging out with those teenagers.

I think teenagers get a bad rap. I heard it a lot when my own kids (now 11 and 13) were young. ?Just wait till they?re teenagers.? Yes I?ve heard and seen stories of teens messing up in so many ways. I did too, so did my siblings. We?ve all known some bad apples. But my experience with teenagers so far" It?s been really great.
My 17 year old nephew just graduated from high school. He managed to get a year of college credits under his belt, he is dating a lovely young lady, and in the fall he is headed to nursing school. He is intelligent, witty, thoughtful, and has a great sense of humor.
My 15 year old nephew is super tech savvy. He has his own YouTube channel and in just a few hours taught me the basics of how to use Adobe Premier for making videos. (Yes, videos are coming to this site soon!). He is extremely creative and he lives in the moment and he makes me laugh with his crazy jokes. My 14 year old niece is the loveliest person. She is curious about the world but hip to what?s happening in it. She has a beautiful heart and wants to work with special needs kids someday.
My 13 year old daughter is confident and funny. She has a passion for baking and theater and new adventures. She?s always sharing amusing memes with me or making me take silly pictures with her.
My stepdaughter is 25 now, but I remember her teenage years with fondness as well. Her friends were always coming over and always hungry, so I was always happy I remembered to grab a few frozen pizzas and extra drinks knowing they?d descend on the house at any moment. Teens come in and out of your home at all hours, their lives filled with school and activities and social events, and it’s the best when they come home and sit with you and tell you stories about their day.
Today?s teens are so savvy with technology, but I loved seeing that my nephews and niece were not always on their phones. On our family?s ride out to the beach, we shared jokes and stories instead of silently scrolling through phones. During our meals at the restaurant, we would had conversations about food and movies with no phones. I found it so refreshing to experience teenagers demonstrating real etiquette in this world where it seems so many millenn...
