Helping the Awkward Tween

By December 8, 2013

Follow me on:

Tweens can be awkward, it's just a part of growing up. But you can help your tween minimize his or her awkwardness by teaching them about personal space and that their behavior can make others feel comfortable or uncomfortable. It's a balancing act -- being yourself and fitting in at the same time. Role play situations if your tween has questions, and don't worry. The awkward stage doesn't last that long.
