Teens & Tweens Round-up: Education, education, education!

For parents of teens and tweens, this is the time of year when education becomes even more important than normal. Concerns about education inevitably increase with the age of your child and the stakes get higher. You worry about what primary school they will go to, only to realise that you worry more about secondary schools. Then you worry about GCSEs and but discover that this was nothing compared to A levels when there is a university place depending on the results! It can seem never ending.

We are now firmly in the middle of exam season. For those about to move from primary to secondary or from secondary school to university, this is a crucial period. Parents can feel the strain too! We are fortunate to have a talented band of tween and teen parent bloggers to depend on and many of them have shared their posts with me this month. Here’s a sample of the brilliant variety that I have seen over the last few weeks.

So, that’s all for this month. I’d love to hear what you thought of them. There’s plenty more each week in the #TweensTeensBeyond linky on my blog. Good luck with the rest of this term. If you have a blog post that you think will be useful for Mums and Dads of tweens, teens or young adult children I would love to read it. You can submit it for consideration by emailing me at [email protected] Take care and I’ll see you next month.

About Sharon Parry

Sharon is a Mum to three fabulous tween and teen daughters. After leaving a scientific academic career to raise her family she discovered the world of writing which ultimately led to her launching her blog http://www.aftertheplayground.com in early 2016.
As a veteran of the parenting scene, you’d think she’d know what she was doing by now. She doesn’t. Instead, she is gradually adjusting to parenting teens and adult children and will probably become an expert shortly after her youngest leaves home. She shares her experiences of defining this fascinating stage of motherhood (and of herself) on her blog and at @DrSharonParry1.
