Some of you may already play the game, but I know there are some that roll their eyes at it. Well, don’t. In order to bond with your teen you should pick up your phone and play with them. That means YOU have to play. Not just look over their shoulder.
Yes, some teens will find it “weird” at first, but they will get over it once you start engaging with them about the game (you might even impress them with your insights). This gives you both a common interest that will allow you to bond and chat. You can talk about what Pokémon you’ve each caught or what your favorites are. Easy. Peasy.
