With their new depth of knowledge and understanding they expect and deserve more independence and respect.
This group thinks they are all grown up … and they’ll need your support for at least another 10 years! They also need help finding their voice and stating their opinions. Help them with this development with lots of time to think and plan on their own. Ask questions that require in-depth thinking rather than just the facts. They’re exploring their own sense of style and personality. They may “try” a few before they find the right one. Give them support and permission to explore who they are.
Tweens are becoming world-wide thinkers and will be interested in exploring conversations about the future. Stories from the past will help to solidify family values and traditions. You may notice their speech contains more slang and that their tone can be argumentative. Lead by example!
