Q:

What can a teenager do during the summer?

A:

Teens can spend their summers playing sports, working at a job, starting a business, hanging out with their friends, helping with projects around the house, taking extracurricular classes, hanging out at a pool or learning a new language. They can also read books, learn a new skill such as playing music or computer programming, invent what they think is missing from the world and just unplug and relax.

Teens can spend their summers balancing time for rest and relaxation with taking on responsibilities outside of school. Experimenting with starting a business is a great learning opportunity, plus a chance to make some money, notes The Washington Post. Working a summer job is an opportunity not only to make some money, but also to meet people outside their regular social circle. Picking up a hobby or a craft such as jewelry making is a great way to spend time.

Teens can also learn how to cook different things on the grill. If their family is going on a vacation, they can help plan the logistics of the trip. Summer also provides the best weather for camping, so teens can either camp with their family or organize a trip with their friends to spend some time away relaxing in a natural setting.
