Overview The middle years, 9 to 12 years of age, are perhaps the most significant attitude-forming period in the life of a child. It is during this time that the roots of moral character are established. From the foundation that is formed, healthy or not-so-healthy family relationships will be built. During the preteen years, patterns of conduct are firmly established patterns that will impact your parent-child relationship for decades to come.

Excellent Resource for Pre-teen years Jul 18, 2004
I read this book when my daughter was in gr.4. The book provided excellent guidelines/principles in PREPARING me for the pre-teen years. Two most important ideas gained from the book were 1) the book served as a "map" for parents entering the pre-teen years (i.e. what to expect); and 2) the extent of a parent's "authority" has with one's child is contignent on the "relationship" that exists. Excellent resource for anyone who works with pre-teens.
