Editorial Reviews

MTL Magazine
Father of five and Dynamic Dads founder Paul Pettit gives parents affirmation and good advice for guiding their tweens (kids between the ages of 8 and 12) through this rollercoaster time in between early childhood and the teen years. Todayís tweens suffer from what some experts call ìKAGOYî (Kids Are Getting Older Younger), and it can present real challenges to Christian parents that Pettit deftly addresses as he calls for a ìbalanced parentingî approach that leads to preparing your tween to ìleave the nestî without over- or under- controlling the adolescent. Pettitís words are a comfort to parents who want to speak their tweenís language.
