How do I become the house where teens hang out & what kind of rules should be in place?
I have four sons between ages of 10-20, two are in middle school, and I would like to become the house where the kids hang out. My oldest didn't really have a lot of friends and they didn't hang out here much. However, my middle school boys have a lot of friends, both boys & girls.
How do I become the house where the teens want to hang out, and what kind of rules do you recommend?
I didn't grow up in a house like this, and so I'm not sure what to do to encourage and build the welcoming yet safe environment. Also, what kind of communication should I have with the other parents?
All ideas are welcome...thanks!
