What is a Tween
A tween is a child between the ages of 7 and 12, usually in 1st through 6th grade. They are in between (get it “tween) Kindergarten and Middle School. A Tween is a child who is starting to question their surroundings, becoming more aware of others and experiencing peer pressure. Children in this age group are also increasingly delving into technology and in the later years requesting cell phones. Parenting a tween can be a lot of fun as children begin to develop greater language and physical skills. But, parenting tweens can also be challenging. Tweens begin revolting against their parents in small ways, testing their boundaries and feeling the pressures of the world around them.
