It’s Not a Phase
It’s important to take your entire family on vacation during the summer. Make the best use of your children’s three-month-long break and go to the beach or visit an amusement park. Do something that’ll get your angsty teen out of the dungeon they call a bedroom. They could certainly use some more sunshine and vitamin D.
And don’t for a second assume that your goth teenage daughter doesn’t like family trips to the beach. She may dress up like she’s getting ready to sacrifice a goat, but deep down, she’s happy just to spend time with her family. Or this person might be a beach prop. We don’t know these people.
