Teens & Tweens Round-up: Exciting times ahead

Welcome to the Autumn! I hope your Summer was full of fun and that you made loads of gorgeous memories with your teens and tweens. This is the time of year when they all seem to move a few steps away from us. Older teens depart for university and younger children move up to higher academic levels or move up to high schools. This can be a challenging time for parents as they struggle to keep up. So, I’ve put together a collection of great posts to get you through it.

If you are feeling a little reflective about raising tweens, teens and midlife, here some super posts that you simply must read. There is a growing band of Mums and Dads who are writing about raising tweens and teens (and young adult children) and we can all learn a lot from what they have to say. It’s like strolling around a virtual playground at pick-up time and chatting to the experienced Mums and Dads. Hope you enjoy them!

That’s it for now. If you write about issues relating to kids aged 10 and above and would like to submit a post for consideration I’d love to hear from you at [email protected]

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.
