  • Hi! I'm not a teen, but IMO, I think that teens usually don't want much to do with their parents anyway. I wouldn't take it personally.
    Just let them know that you are there for them when they need you. Try to take them out to breakfast or something once in a while. Try to at least have dinner together once a week or so.
    Hope this helps
