There's a certain age in every child's life where they're not quite too cool to give Momma a hug in front of the school, but also find a fascination in bands like One Direction and shirts screen printed with 'YOLO.' This, somewhat traumatic phase, for mothers, is known as 'Tween' the years marked as the period between child and teenager, roughly ages 9-12. When I was a child no such term existed- I transitioned without hesitation from Polly Pocket and Barbies to Tiger Beat and the Backstreet Boys. And, have you noticed that most eating establishments now list age '10' as the kids meal cut-off, when it was once a solid '12'? Yes, it seems society is trying to propel our children towards adulthood faster and faster, and labeling them tweens only serves as a sort of self entitlement to begin sassing and 'expressing' even younger. Fear not, parents and guardians, you can still hold onto the special glimmers of childhood with simple encouragements of self expression.
What Daughter Says: Allow your tween to claim their space without the mess and fuss of paint, choose decorative wall stickers for removable expression.
