Preparing Your Child for Middle School
The move from elementary school to middle school can be a big transition. Not only will your child go from being the oldest in elementary school to the youngest in middle school, but he is likely experiencing other changes, as well, as he enters his early teen, or “tween”, years. He may be at a new school with new and older students, new teachers, and a new way of doing things, all of which can cause fear and anxiety. Although he may no longer be your baby, there are steps you can take to help your child through this difficult time and get his tween years off to a great start!
