Publisher's Summary

If your child is between the ages of nine and twelve, you are in the throes of the 'between' years. Not quite a child and not yet a teenager, tweens embody a very specific stage of development that once understood will revolutionise the way you parent, educate and support those in your care.

In Tweens, award-winning parenting educator Michelle Mitchell explains that this is the most rapid period of development since toddlerhood. Right now, before the full pressures of high school hit, you have a window of opportunity that can change the trajectory of adolescence and beyond.

Using the results from her recent survey of more than 2000 parents and tweens, along with interviews with experts, Michelle compassionately guides parents through their children's friendship issues, mood swings, confidence crises, technology habits, sibling rivalry, body image concerns and seemingly inexplicable behaviour. She provides invaluable practical advice and groundbreaking research from leading organisations to reassure parents that tweens are ready to be switched on to their potential, and every trusted adult in their lives can be a part of that process.

Some hard truths delivered in an easy to hear manner

I liked the stories and appreciated the statistics, and also some insight into things I hadn’t considered for this age group. I have always boasted how important it is to let kids be kids as long as possible but I hadn’t realised I am in the minority now days! The statistics in this book shocked me. I’m even more passionate about letting kids be kids longer now!

Essential. I listened and then bought the hard copy too.

I have 4 sons. Two in the tween years, one almost there and one years away. At least 3 of them are ND. Every day is a challenge. This book helped me understand what might be going on for the kids and how I could continue to keep focusing on connection as the most important thing to move forward with.
The book was completely relatable to me on many levels and the Australian narration made it sit even more at home.
I listened to the book and then bought the hard copy to hopefully have my husband read, lend to friends and refer to as the years go on.
Great content and the narration was really calming yet animated.
