They may look sweet and compliant, but these days children aged between 8 and 12—“tweens” —are fast emerging as a force to be reckoned with. Gaining in confidence, expecting more freedom, and increasingly targeted commercially, they present many new and challenging issues for parents. But getting the relationship right during these important years can build a rewarding trust and openness that will see parents through the rocky teenage years ahead.Giving sound advice that is firmly rooted in the real world and based on a clear understanding of tweens needs, parenting expert Elizabeth Hartley-Brewer explains how staying close to our children while beginning to let go helps us achieve the balance that is so important for the parent-child relationship. Tackling everyday issues of real concern, Talking to Tweens offers practical, down-to-earth, and reassuring guidance on: Self-discipline, consideration, and kindnessPeer pressure and bullyingAllowances and spending moneyBody image and healthy eatingSex and pubertyFamily disruptionsRisk, danger, and responsibilitySchool problems and work pressureNurturing self-esteem and identity
