From child to tween to teen..

The transition from a child to a tween and then a teenager is arguably one of the hardest times in any parent or guardians life. The physical and biological changes that are happening in your child’s body are significant and can have both a positive and negative effect on a family. You might be troubled with a problem teenager or delighted with the progress of a tween at school. Dealing with some issues can be very difficult for parents particularly when they involve sex and relationships, pregnancy and substance abuse. There is a lot of help and support though and our forum was designed to help you get advice, ask questions or just make conversation with parents in a similar situation.
