About Tween Talk
Tween Talk was born out of 3 experiences:
I am a therapist who has worked with “tweens” for years
I am the mom of a “tween” (10 year old girl, rising 5th grader)
Other moms come to me regularly to vent & ask for feedback BECAUSE I am a therapist & mom of a “tween”!!
“Tween” is a term that refers to kids ages 8-12 because they are in an “in-between” phase of life (get it?!). And it turns out that being a “tween” is really challenging for the kids AND the parents! Not only are they struggling with school transitions, but their friend groups are changing, academic pressure is rising, awareness of self and the world is increasing, and … HORMONES! The combination of all these elements appears to be creating an intense level of stress and anxiety.
Because we as parents did not experience anxiety like this at such a young age, we are struggling to understand it. We are finding these unique types of anxiety difficult to verbalize, therefore, we are unable to help our kids learn how to verbalize it. And if we can’t put appropriate words around it, how can we help them (or ourselves)??
This online workshop is designed to help YOU help YOUR TWEEN navigate the “tween” years more smoothly through our discussion of:
Identifying the different types of anxiety our “tweens” are experiencing
More effective language to use when communicating with your “tween”
Tips & tricks to teach your “tween” coping skills and ways to manage stress & anxiety
Basic understanding & warning signs of mental health concerns (now & for the future!)
How to effectively support your “tween” without increasing stress & anxiety
Who is this workshop for? While this workshop is designed for parents, it can also be useful to anyone who works with and serves as a support system for “tweens” ages 8-12, including caregivers other than parents, teachers, youth group leaders, etc.
