No matter how old your child gets, it's important to hug, sing, dance, laugh and love. And even when your teen acts as if they can't stand it, rest assured it's something they secretly adore and need.

Let's Do Lunch
Make a lunch date with your child and take them out for pizza, Chinese or Sushi (whatever they love). Use the hour to catch up on what's happening. Let them do the talking—you do the eating. I know a mother and a child who go out to the same restaurant on the last day of school each year. They have created a tradition of celebrating the ending school year, and sharing dreams and goals for the summer and the year ahead.
