Give advice on whether or not you should encourage your children to take some quiet time to themselves. Give them options to read a book quietly or sit and watch a movie in their room for a little while. Discuss the benefits of allowing your children to be calm and quiet and have their own space for a short period of time. Parents may seem to want to take a break from their kids but sometimes kids, especially teens, need time away from parents and it is okay and even healthy to give them space to figure out their problems and their needs.
