What's my tween thinking? Practical child psychology for modern parents

Tanith Carey

Book - 2024

Parenting just got tougher. As your child's brain rewires, hormones kick in, and independence beckons, a perfect storm for family conflict emerges. But help is at hand. Divided into two sections - aged 8 to 10 and aged 10 to 12 - this practical parenting book is grounded in evidence-based psychology, exploring the science at work during this period of your child's development. Taking 75 everyday scenarios, the book tackles real-world issues head-on, from sibling clashes and sulks to more serious concerns as your child edges towards their teenage years, such as handling anger, body consciousness, online safety, and self-harm.
