To all tween guardians - you are amazing!
Parents today are facing some tough challenges. Long working hours, a higher cost of living, smaller family networks. At the same time, there is the pressure to be a parent who is present, nurturing, creative, and an all-round domestic hero!
They must face contrasting views on social media but, somehow, know how to choose just the right parenting advice and find the time to read it! All this while trying to cut down on screen time and get their children outside more!
Tweens may well be facing their own battles. The pressure to look a certain way, act a certain way, perform at school, grow up and fit in with their friends - not to mention coping with all their physical changes. All this while trying to make sense of society's icons and endless images and how this relates to them and their view of themselves.
These conflicts are not only filtering through into children's home lives, but also their school and personal lives. Caretakers, key workers, nannies, and other related professionals are therefore encountering their own hurdles as they dedicate themselves to making a difference in both youngsters and parents' lives.
