Raising Middle School

101 - Raising Middle School

Early adolescence (10-13) is mostly played out in the middle school years.  This incredible time of change is often a major source of frustration and conflict for girls and their families.

Unrealistic expectations are often a root cause of stress and chaos.  You still see her as 7 yrs old and she sees herself as 25.   Emotions run high during this time.

We have found that with a little help in understanding what is realistic and how to manage expectations, this time can and will run a lot smoother, making it favorable for both of you.
