Overview

This book details the physical, social, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual changes the middle schooler goes through and gives parents tips on how to deal with these changes.

Does your child - switch moods every five minutes? - ask you to drop her off a block away from school? - decorate his bedroom in "early landfill"? - answer all questions with "I dunno" and "Nuthin"? Congratulations! Chances are you're the parent of a middle schooler — an eleven-to-fourteen-year-old who is going through a "second birth," changing from child to adult. If you are more terrified of adolescence than you are of childbirth, Enjoy Your Middle Schooler is the book for you. Just as birthing classes help you to relax by telling you what to do and what to expect, so does veteran youth worker and parent Wayne Rice coach you on what to expect from a middle schooler. The result? You can relax and enjoy your child's middle-school years instead of suffering through them. Besides giving a thorough overview of the physical, emotional, social, intellectual, and spiritual development of young adolescents, Rice covers crucial topics such as: - peer pressure - self-image - friendships - sexuality - rebellion - spiritual growth - responsibility - discipline - and much more
