BOTH PARENTS AND KIDS HAVE PROBlems surviving middle school years. Middle school students are usually between the ages of 10-13 years. Middle school happens at a tumultuous time of life when a child is not a little kid anymore but she is also not yet a teenager. She's in between. Middle school means a "middle-aged" kid...a tween. Middle school kids are not just in between childhood and teenage, they are also caught in an emotional tug-of-war between a desire for independence and a need for parental protection. "Tween-agers" take risks, love adventures, and believe that they are immortal. But "middle-aged" kids also worry about what their friends think, they suffer deeply from hurt feelings, and they are concerned about their changing body image. Surging hormones cause tweens to act as if they have a permanent case of PMS. It's a confusing time of life...for middle school children and for the parents who love them.* Review "history" or "favorites" and know your tween's password.
