Tweens are hard. They are navigating a world between childhood and those pre-adulthood years (the dreaded teens!). Yikes! Middle School isn’t really a place that many of us would be excited to go back to anytime soon either!
But good news!
We have help! Phyllis Fagell talks to us on the podcast about the 10 key skills your tween needs to THRIVE, and how parents can help!
