Loving teenagers can sometimes be challenging even when you know their love language. Let’s say your teen’s primary love language is quality time; so, you take the teen to see a ball game, or you watch a game on TV. Does the teen feel loved? Not necessarily. If the teen walks away from the experience feeling lonely and thinking, “Sports are move important to my father than I am,” you did not give him quality time.
On the other hand, if the teen gets the message, “The most important thing about this game is being with you. I love it when we do things together;” then the teen will walk away feeling loved. The key to speaking the love language of Quality Time is that the teen is the focus of your attention.
