Motherhood – Parenting and Preparing Tweens: Navigating Friends, Technology, and Teaching Self-Worth

The years of 7-12 are commonly known as the “tween” years. They’re no longer little kids but they’re also not quite adolescents; they’re somewhere in between. What challenges do tweens face? And what challenges do we, as parents, face in raising them? Join me and my guest, Holly Budde, creator of the “Tweenspot” blog, as we discuss  how to connect with tweens and how to keep communication strong—about friends, body image, technology, and self-worth–as they move on to the teen years and beyond. For more on self-esteem & self-worth, visit my blog, and be sure to join me on my website for other free resources to help you in your parenting journey!
