Overview

Adolescence is one of the most difficult periods in life – for preteens, parents, and teachers. Some of the most common problems associated with children in the “tween” stage — children 9 to 12 years old — include social problems, disrespect, alcohol or drug use, lying, and refusing to come out of their room. As difficult as this time is for children, it is even more trying for the adults in the tweens’ lives, namely teachers and parents. How can you keep the lines of communication open with your preteen child or student and help them manage this difficult time period?

A Complete Guide for the Parents and Teachers of Preteens: How to Survive & Thrive During the Tween Years will give you a comprehensive guide for dealing with problems most preteens experience. You will learn more about the self-esteem issues tweens deal with and how to effectively help your child or student navigate this trying time period. You will master ways to help your tween resolve issues with friends and siblings, deal with teasing, prepare for puberty, and socialize with members of the opposite sex. You will discover how to recognize what common phases and emotions children this age experience so you will know whether your tween’s actions are the result of raging hormones or an indication your tween may be showing signs of deeper emotional troubles or problems with drugs or alcohol. This book will also provide a special section for teachers on ways to manage dozens of preteens at one time and how to cope with problems many students this age experience, including bullying, cliques, and peer pressure. Both parents and teachers will learn how to respect their tweens’ boundaries and how to maintain effective communication without intruding on preteens’ need for privacy.

We’ve spent hundreds of hours researching ways to resolve problems with this complex group of children. Case studies from teachers, parents, counselors, and psychologists will give you countless tips and advice on how to survive this trying time period. With more pressure than ever facing children today, it is important to arm yourself with as much research and knowledge as possible so you and your tween can make it through this time period successfully. With A Complete Guide for the Parents and Teachers of Preteens, you and your child or students will survive this period of adjustment together.
