HEY! First Time Here?

Hola and welcome!  We’re so glad you’ve joined us.

Los Tweens and Teens is a resource for multicultural parents of children ages 7-17.   We share ideas, tips and tricks to dealing with these stressful but fun years.  We currently feature content in English and Spanish.

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.

How Los Tweens Helps

Los Tweens founders, Cristy and Katherine, share their personal experiences on raising tweens throughout the blog.  From responding to your tween saying, “I hate you,” to dealing with the challenges of technology.  Their articles delve into how to react when these moments happen.  They also provide tips and advice on technology purchases, movies, fashion and more.  Los Tweens & Teens Experts Board consists of a teacher, dad, psychologist and coach who give professional and important insight into tweens psyche.
