This ground-breaking book provides an examination of the new phenomenon of "tweens": children who maturing earlier, both physically and psychologically, and who are becoming increasingly sophisticated in the way they dress and act. This ground-breaking book provides an examination of the new phenomenon of "tweens": children who maturing earlier, both physically and psychologically, and who are becoming increasingly sophisticated in the way they dress and act. Gently guiding parents to an understanding of the differences between twen and teen behaviour, author Andrea Clifford-Poston demonstrates how the issues parents face in their children's adolescence have roots in the tween years. Packed with case studies from the author's own extensive experience, this book provides clear accounts of child development theories, guidance on management, and much more.
