Parenting the tween years (7-12 years old)

1 hour instructor-led seminar or webinar
For parents

Overview

Parents with children in their tween years, aged seven to 12, are faced with unique challenges, as are their children. While these kids are no longer toddlers, they are not yet ready for the increased level of independence teenagers frequently experience. This seminar will give participants insight into parenting children in this age group and share information about developmental and behavioural issues, peer group dynamics, puberty, responsibility, and discipline. Participants will discuss valuable strategies designed to make this stage of their child’s growth safe, satisfying, and enjoyable.

Learning objectives

At the end of this seminar, participants will be able to do the following:

  • Understand the developmental issues of children at this stage.
  • Develop strategies to cope with the challenges that can arise.
  • Communicate expectations effectively.
  • Discuss the principles of responsibility, independence, identity, and morality.
