I Told You So…

Posted: August 20, 2007 in Everything

For years I’ve been telling parents and other concerned adults that kids really do like to spend time with them. Teenagers like their families. Almost to a person people have rejected the idea that adolescents both listen to and appreciate mom and dad. Unfortunately, many folks have bought into the pop-culture lie that teenagers dislike their families and don’t want to be around them. I’ve been saying for years that that belief is not true. And turns out I was right!

Now I have proof!

An MTV/Associated Press study reports that it’s not money, music, sex, or materialism that makes teens happy: It’s time spent with their families. Almost half the kids responded that one or both of their parents were their heroes.

How about that!
