Parents will experience some degree of the empty nest syndrome when their child leaves home; however, the relationship they have developed during the teenage years and throughout the course of adolescence will impact the extent to which they are affected.
Writing letters containing fatherly advice and words of wisdom regularly throughout the course of adolescence and through your son’s teenage years can help build strong, communicative relationships.
In an ever-more digital world of interaction, letters can provide a platform for deeper, more impactful communication. This is the story of how a father used letters to build his relationship to his son, and instill a great passion for writing and storytelling.
Strong communication is essential for all relationships. Exchanging letters with your children and carving out the time to connect in meaningful ways can help all parents bond with their kids.
