About What's My Tween Thinking?

Parenting just got tougher. As your child’s brain rewires, hormones kick in, and independence beckons, a perfect storm for family conflict emerges. But help is at hand.

Divided into two sections – aged 8 to 10 and aged 10 to 12 – this practical parenting book is grounded in evidence-based psychology, exploring the science at work during this period of your child’s development.

Taking 75 everyday scenarios, the book tackles real-world issues head-on, from sibling clashes and sulks to more serious concerns as your child edges towards their teenage years, such as handling anger, body consciousness, online safety, and self-harm.

Discover how to create a supportive environment at home and how your behavior can help your tween manage whatever life throws at them as you also explore:

-Difficult topics relevant to parents today, such as pornography and self-harm.
-Everyday topics include clashes over sleepovers, first phones, homework, and going out with friends.
-Content by Dr Angharad Rudkin, who is a child psychology expert, and Tanith Carey, a well-known parenting journalist who writes regularly for the Guardian.

Building a strong relationship based on mutual trust and respect will ensure a smooth transition into your child’s teenage years.
