Quality one-on-one time with individual children is key to making each little feel special – especially as they grow older. Here’s a list of 40 things to do with your teenage daughter in case you are looking for fun ways to reconnect with your special girl.
How do you spend quality time with your teenage daughter?
I love spending time with my children and now that Natalie isn’t a baby anymore, there are so many more things we can do together during our personal bonding time. With three kids, I make sure to take each out on their own and so something unique and private – just for the two of us. They all look forward to their outing and honestly, so do I!
During those times away from home, I get to talk to them without any interruption. It’s just calmer! If you have multiple children – I think you understand what I mean. At home, it can get a bit chaotic. But when I head out with my teenage girl, we just relax like old friends. It’s just the best!!

What should I do for my mother daughter day?
After reading this list, what will you do for your mother daughter day? There are so many options – it’s almost endless! The most important thing to remember is quality time will look different for every family. Just think about what is special to your little girl and do THAT.
Some children do not like getting their nails done. My daughter HATES getting pedicures. So, I would NEVER think to make my nail appointments with her because it would feel like a chore more than anything else. She is artistic and crafty. So, a great thing to do with my teenage girl would be a pottery class or a photography walk. That’s much more up her alley.
Customize the plan and mark it on your calendar. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
