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.
- I share my recent post which is a summary of my thoughts on parents getting involved in their children’s education.
- From Busy Mum Lifestyle, there’s a revealing post on what the move to secondary school is really like.
- There’s a great post from Feeling the Squeeze called I always knew you’d be a woman on a subject that is vitally important to parents of tweens and teens. Puberty can be a challenging time and brings with it a whole load of issues to contend with.
- From Rachna Says, there’s a brilliant post comparing parenting between the generations. This one will make you think!
- From Not Just the 3 of Us, there’s a super useful post on tweens and teens getting part-time jobs. There are plenty of facts here that you need to know.
- Mother Distracted offers some insightful Tips For Parenting Tweens. This is one to bookmark and keep referring back to.
- Crazy with twins shares an honest account of The Late Entrance Exam for Grammar School : Last Minute Preparations which I know will be useful to many parents in the same situation.
- Finally, I share my post on Five ways to help your child cope with the transition to secondary school which will make useful reading if you have a transition coming up this year.
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.
