Check-in with your teens as we begin this return to “sort of normal.” Their interior life may have shifted quite a bit during the last, several months of being home, disconnected from their peers. Ask them how they’re doing as they consider stepping back into it all. They may be feeling a bit lopsided and unsteady. Let them know that you’re there just to listen to them, not to fix them. Be present for them even if they’re not asking for your presence. They might need it more than ever.
