It seems like most parenting books and articles focus on parenting younger children. Why is that? Do we feel as a society once our children are teenagers there is not much we can do? How can we, as parents, help teenagers feel loved?

The other day, an article about 52 text message love bombs to send your husband flashed on my news feed and I thought, “That’s it!”

Teenagers need text message love bombs from their parents because being a teenager is tough. (You remember, right?)

Expressing your love for your teenagers may be difficult at times – but they need your love and encouragement more than you realize. There may be days you adore them and others when you can’t wait until they are out on their own. It can be a trying and challenging time for both of you.

No matter what they do, you want them to know how much they are loved and know their great value.

When you send a quick text message every day with expressions of love and encouragement, they will feel better about themselves and have a stronger connection to you.

You may be surprised by the happy feelings that come to your heart as you think of them and reach out in this quiet expression of love.

Give it a try and see if it helps your relationship grow during this challenging time for both of you.
