About the Podcast
Join teens expert Annie Fox and Dare to Parent's Amy Ambrozich as they discuss how the tween years are transitional years for kids and parents. Amy defines this period as the shift between the elementary school years (“typically smooth and easy going”) to middle school where kids feel like everything is changing, including their place in social groups. A parent’s role is changing, too. “They’re trying on new skin and now we’re parenting a young adult with training wheels. Consistency is the key to getting through these years,” says Amy, who counsels parents of tweens in her private practice. Annie talks with Amy about riding the emotional roller coaster together with your child so that kids and parents can transition more smoothly.
