Parents
with children in the tween years, aged 7 to 12, are faced with unique
challenges, as are their children. While their kids are no longer
toddlers, they’re children are not yet ready for the increased level of
independence teenagers frequently experience. This session will give
participants insight into parenting children in this age group and share
information about developmental and behavioural issues, peer group
dynamics, puberty, responsibility, and discipline. Participants will
discuss valuable strategies designed to make this stage of their child’s
growth safe, satisfying, and enjoyable.

You are welcome to bring a
guest to this seminar to attend with you. Please ensure you check the
“I will bring a guest” option in your registration and indicate if you
are participating in Halifax or Truro.

Learning objectives:
At the end of this session, participants will be able to do the following:
• Understand the developmental issues of children at this stage.
• Develop strategies to cope with the challenges that can arise.
• Communicate expectations effectively.
• Discuss the principles of responsibility, independence, identity, and morality
