Urban Dictionary humorously defines a tween as, “a girl/boy about 9-14…too old for toys, but too young for boys/girls. Very easy to market to, will usually follow any fashion trend set for them, will most likely go through the phase of ‘finding themselves’ as they ‘grow up’.”
All joking aside, About Parenting defines this age as the following: “While a tween is not yet in the midst of adolescence, he or she will face a variety of obstacles in the next few years including transitioning from elementary school to middle school,approaching puberty, increasing responsibilities, increasing amounts of homework, and exposure to dangerous behaviors by their peers including drugs, sex, and more. Tweens can be a challenge to parents. One minute they can be sweet and loving, the next they can be moody and difficult.”
Which is why we at Mommybites, along with one of Mommybites’ favorite parenting experts, Brandi Davis, have created this important teleclass devoted to parenting tweens which will cover such topics as:
- Tween basics
- How to let tweens be Tweens
- Expression of feelings
- Peers & Peer pressure
- Electronic time
- Ending homework hassle and fights
- And more!
