BETWEEN is a modern guide for parents of 8-13 year-olds – also known as ‘tweenagers’. Parenting expert and mother of four Sarah Ockwell-Smith will consider all the issues faced by parents and tweens today, with a focus on the biology, neurology, psychology and sociology of adolescence as well as plenty of practical parenting advice for common everyday situations. The book will cover: * How a child’s brain and body develops in this age range and how this impacts their behaviour *How your relationship with your child changes as they grow up – your new place as a parent * Revisiting your own tween and teen years – why it’s important to remove triggers and unhelpful inherited beliefs from your own upbringing *Coping with common tween behaviour: disrespect, rudeness, backchat, swearing, sulks, defiance, laziness, anger and violence * Speaking to your child about sex and relationships (including LGBTQ+ issues and body autonomy) * Speaking to your child about racism, sexism and homophobia/transphobia * Speaking to your child about diet, body care and body positivity * Screen time and social media usage – how their online life impacts children today * Sleep – how much tweens need, why most don’t get enough and how to get them to have more * Issues at school – including motivation, revision, homework, coping with workload, school related anxiety
