Parents with children in the tween years, aged 7 to 12, are faced with unique challenges, as are their children. While their kids are no longer toddlers, they’re children are not yet ready for the increased level of independence teenagers frequently experience. This session 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.

You are welcome to bring a guest to this seminar to attend with you. Please ensure you check the “I will bring a guest” option in your registration and indicate if you are participating in Halifax or Truro.
