The tween years are a time of transition and change. A tween is maturing into a teenager physically, emotionally, and socially and they are learning to take on new responsibilities at school and home. Parents of tweens notice a lot of changes in their children over these few years.

The self-discovery happening during the tween years is huge, and it’s endlessly fascinating to watch. However, the tough parts — like the moodiness, and the self-doubt, and the downright rude. Parents may be frustrated and angry that the teen seems to no longer respond to parental authority.

Methods of discipline that worked well in earlier years may no longer have an effect. And, parents may feel frightened and helpless about the choices their teen is making. As a result, the teen years are ripe for producing conflict in the family.

The tween years are those years between approximately 8 and 13 when a child is not yet a teen but no longer just a little kid. They are often overlooked by parents and experts, alike because they happen to fall between two very busy and exciting stages of life – early childhood and the teen years. You’re probably in the throes of parenting the “between” years. This age group, which usually describes kids ages 9 to 12, is better known as the tweens.

From shyness to independence, from baby fat to puberty, this can be a wildly exciting and tumultuous time of life for you and your tween. “Parenting tweens can be challenging for parents, because their ‘little kid’ who liked to cuddle, learn. So, although it can be a period of conflict between parent and child, the teen years are also a time to help kids grow into the distinct individuals they will become. Understanding the Teen Years.

So when does adolescence start? Everybody’s different — there are early bloomers, late arrivers, speedy developers, and slow-but-steady growers. The tween years aren’t easy for anybody, parent or child.

But the preteen years can be especially hard on girls. 1  Puberty is just the beginning. Before your child heads off to high school, she’ll have to navigate her way through middle school, boys, body image, peer pressure and tons more. It’s common knowledge that the tween and teenage years can be hard on the parent-child relationship.

Experiencing defiance, rejection, and ridicule from one’s child is very upsetting for parents. It’s easy for parents to get very angry and disheartened with their tween’s snarky attitude, disrespect, selfishness, and lack of gratitude, or with their teen’s pushing away from parental hugs and other expressions of. Preadolescence, also known as pre-teen or tween, is a stage of human development following early childhood and preceding adolescence.

It commonly ends with the beginning of puberty but may also be defined as ending with the start of the teenage years. For example, the age range is commonly designated as 10–13 years. Teenage pregnancy, also known as adolescent pregnancy, is pregnancy in a female under the age of 20.

Pregnancy can occur with sexual intercourse after the start of ovulation, which can be before the first menstrual period (menarche) but usually occurs after the onset of periods. In well-nourished girls, the first period usually takes place around the age of 12 or 13.

However, it must be noted that the range of heights in children in any particular age group is larger than the amount of growth that occurs in any one year, therefore a child’s age is only a very crude guide or ‘designation’ of his/her expected stature.

  • Ok the first and third kid was so sad the first kid was just a little kid they should’ve just gave him therapy and the third boy was literally shaking��

  • Just because their criminals doesnt mean they are not kids kids are hurt even more an adult cant probably resist this this is harassment kids can die and girls cleaning the toilet thats how hatred anger is made revenge is a bad thing unless thats the reason harrasment is bad police isnt justice they need to treat everybody even criminals with atleast with a little bit respect

  • Bro, I would NOT let my kids go there like they said they put those kids even insults with murderers like the murderers could literally choke him to death if they wanted to like come on fr?

  • Man this is not fair they should not be arrested for That they just kids they feel it good and they learn from they parents they should not be arrested

    If you agree plz like

  • I “borrow” money of my parents here and there and they don’t know, up to $50 here and there:p so honestly I’m worse then that kid.

  • Interesting fact:This is illegal. Taking kids some not even teenagers to prison given them Prison food and slamming them in cells is illegal and the parents would loose custody of their children.

  • I just hope I can be a great parents like Gary and her wife so that my child will be a great child like Haoh
    who watch the return of superman will know this

  • They went WAYYYYYY TOO FAR for the nine year old boy; all he did was steal pocket change… i steal ten dollar bills from my parents and all they do is spank and ground me for a day.

  • They be cussing and doing god knows what anyway best to give them a wake up scare rather than them to end up dead or in prison when they’re older people who have issue with this then wonder why it’s so many teenage criminals some kids it takes something like this to wake them up and even after this some the kids still won’t change and will end up here in real life

  • I had a pretty bad childhood. I always promise myself when I have kids im gona be the best parent. But I often wonder maybe I shouldn’t have kid because I don’t wana be the same and he was..

  • But tell me this tell me this the child acting up the school where’s the fucking father where’s the father where’s the father where’s the father where is the father where’s the father where is the father

  • Kids at this age goes through something that traumatic will commit suicide and every parent will wonder what did I do wrong really what did you do wrong youngboy commit suicide and you don’t know why from all of these videos

  • Wrong you just made it worse this black mother made it worse you scare the fuck out of the point where he might commit suicide this young boy my commits suicide write a letter saying I blame my mother

  • Many of them do go way to far and with all that HATE RAGE, ANGER is only and it does cause serious problems, issues, and many mental health issues. This to learn children what could happen to them if they go on like criminals. Many people do believe this is the right proper way to help children to guide them into a better life from being a criminal.
    There’s learning and teaching and guidance to a better future but this to me isn’t the answer.
    Are those very young children crying real tears with real pain harm abuse hurting inside them.
    There very young children not full grown adults.
    As I said many people agree with this harsh bulling form of teaching children how to behave.
    It shocks me to see how any law thinks and believes this is the only way for children who are criminals. And it’s accepted.
    This is one very good way for children to seriously end up with more pressure and fear and also it will lead to bed wetting and falling behind with school work and other health issues that could get worse.
    Nightmares and there very young childhood definitely damaged and destroyed because of this harsh treatment.
    And people complain about adults who murder and rape and kill other adults and even baby’s and children of all ages. And crooks. People who do evil.
    There’s disaplin and the proper right way of teaching and learning and guiding children without going way out of control doing this.
    Those parents who agree to this are in no way going to help there children.
    All this does is without fail and doubt send and put the children right in and through Hell. Weldone parents you have just received and gained your experience and certificate of causing your child far much more pain and harm abuse. Screaming and shouting at children like there adults.
    That only makes it much more worse and it does as it has and it will send many children on the wrong paths and roads in there young life’s.
    It takes big brave men and women to do this to very young children.
    There is never anything human being behavior law in treating children like this and there never won’t be.
    It might work on some but it’s not going to for all children.
    With seeing this harsh treatment done to children no wonder they think and believe the whole world and everyone is against them and no one wants to help them get out and heal and guide them away from a life of crime.
    What I watched in this video is far way gone beyond the barrier of human being rights control and that’s a very dark dangerous place no one shouldn’t ever be in.
    Is this how the parents of those children was treated when they was children.
    This is real life Horror Hell done to teach and learn children.
    No I don’t agree with this as to how it will guide many children to a better life than being a criminal.
    This is to me is wrong and wicked and it shouldn’t ever happen to any child even on a video like this.
    It’s enough to put fear paranoia and serious dangerous health problems on the child.
    This is cruelty even in learning.
    It’s never Rehabilitation and it never won’t be and it sertinlay isn’t healing for the mind, body, spirit, soul.
    It’s without fail and doubt serious damage and destruction. And it’s not human.
    Where is the children’s rights in this.
    Oh I forgot there not adults when treated as such.
    This is also the main cause to get children to become criminals and even end there very young lives. It’s low life vermin slime scum cowards.
    There real life out of control monsters. Where is the real law on human rights for children on this harsh treatment. Many very young children learn fast and very well from good and also from bad. This treatment isn’t good. Why would anyone treat and do such to children.
    And its not healing.
    People who do this and allow this. There not wanting what’s best for there children. There only wanting what’s best for them who do this to children.
    This isn’t ever disaplin.
    If children believe this to be right then all I can say is God help many babies born into there family blood line. This is what will happen to them.
    It’s warped, wicked and very wrong. It’s disgusting. It’s not human. It’s out of control.
    There’s no peace healing in this. Just misguiding many children in and through Hell.

  • You forgot about sexual abuse. My mother was sexually abused as a child by her father. Whether she knew it or not, she equated her sons with her father and would have explosive emotional responses to the slightest perceived provocation. I.e. Saying the specific phrase, “I’m lonely,” would cause her to start crying and saying, “Lonely as you are you don’t need a PHYSICAL relationship!” Unsurprisingly, the only child she developed a lasting relationship with was her daughter.

  • Inmates: what u in here for boi ����������������
    Kid: I stole 25 cents from my mom to buy a bouncy ball ����������������������
    The authority and inmates: OMGNASNNSNKSKSWIWIWOWL ������������������������������

  • A lot of these kids end up like this because their parents are the ones who do these things. Also this program does nothing but traumatize kids

  • My childhood was pretty okay but since I turned 10 or 11 everything went downhill and I am scared of having kids because I don’t want to end up like my mom:(

  • This makes me mad how the parents don’t discipline by them selfs but instead they send them to a Intervention Program and get harsh discipline.

    literally all you got to do is lie and break something and you go to this place.

  • Are..u asking me about pet���� I never have a pet… whenever I ask…. they just say…no u can’t take care of it…so no…it always happens ���� I want a pet��������

    Who want a pet…. just think about a like������I �� pets

  • My parents were divorced before I was born. My dad is on his 4th marriage, my mom is on her 3rd. I once got in trouble for giving step mom #2 a very sarcastic “step parent of the year” award which was a troll doll in a champagne glass. If my son survives to adulthood and isn’t in jail I’ll consider that a success.

  • I’m kind of person that don’t like to treat my future children like how my parents treated me one day
    I know I’m going to do the opposite but as you said in the video, I’m a little bit worry if I’m going to exaggerate
    I think I need to understand myself more and I need to learn more so that I can reach the balance

  • I’m lucky to have had such great teachers/parents growing up.
    -not spank my kids over ever wrong doing (actually not at all, it’s just me but I consider it child abuse)
    -not yell at them over accidents (again I’ll try my best to not do it at all)
    -raise them to really know I love them
    -allow them to have a social life
    -don’t pressure them to get top grades if the best they can do is a B+
    -don’t guilt them into doing things with me or for me
    These are just some but I learned first hand growing up what to do. Since I received the complete opposite of all of these and although it kept me in line, it didn’t for my siblings and that was just so I could go unnoticed. I remember how terrible it would feel to be spanked over dropping my bowl or yelled at for throwing a pillow and now I know, don’t do that to my kids.

  • Nothing wrong with that. Unless it’s your kid, you don’t know why the parents set that up. Unfortunately, some kids don’t get the message until they end up in Juvenile hall. It’s always better to do preemptive things rather than react after the fact.

  • This video really helped me. I’m a good listener, but I communicating assertively. I feel like this makes it easier to “use” me because I’ll help others but others won’t help/listen me

  • I am literally 26 and am now just watching these videos because no one ever taught me how to communicate effectively. i think i will start a school when i grown up

  • hey can yall do a video on suicide and suicidal thoughts? because i always have them and your videos always seem to help me out. anyway, love your channel!

  • I am absolutely terrified that I’m going to end up treating my children like my father treated me. I think he ruined my desire for kids because I’ve been scared of having my own family since I was very, very little. Seeing the correlation between abuse and abusers is somewhat confirming that my fears are valid ����

  • My mom and my dad are opposites. My mom is caring and helps me with a lot! While my dad is rude gets mad by the simplest things, and sometimes hurts me. They also never got married.

  • I’m always an excellent active listener, but I’m a terrible talker, especially about conveying my opinions and storytelling. Do you guys have any tips to get better at it?

  • I always wondered that how I would be as an adult, now, I’m ten years old, and I’m have 11 years until I’m a adult, and I want to be the best I can be

  • Heh �� now this is hitting hard…idk what type of parent ill be in few months… im pregnant currently… I hope ill don’t over do it in overly protecting the child…as my husband tells me I already do as its in my stomach, but thats because I had a miscarriage 6 years ago and that made me traumatized.On the other hand I can be really neglectful when I feel I need time alone… so I hope that wont happen either… my husband is not much of an emotional type so its gonna be up to me to teach my son that its okay to cry and get frustrated sometimes,that he shouldn’t keep it in.Like I was thought by my parents and got beaten up for crying or getting angry over things… even now my husband sometimes do that to me…telling me not to cry or worry or get angry… I know he wants to see me happy but im not a doll…im a human too ��

  • My childhood was pretty fucked up.I has nothing left to lose now, no friends or a normal family.Now I wait to be 18 get a night shift job and move the fuck out of the house, had enough.

  • Growing up I had very over controlling parents, who always wanted me to be with only them. Which has lead me into deep deep depression! I lost my self worth self love and confidence. It’s like way do I even wake up every day?

  • DUDE THE FIRST ONE HIT ME HARD-
    The fift is pritty much me. I dont trust my dad at all, even to the point that im too scared to meet him somewhere. I think that he might leave me with the bill or something similar, yeah i think too much ahead.

  • I don’t say that having children it would be such a bad thing but we need to be careful even if that kid would have quarantined good parents (I don’t say perfect) but good, because maybe the world could do an unexpected thing to them so we better do take a good care of them for their future too, maybe I’m still young but having a a child can be the most beautiful thing �� we just have to get them a good future

  • Psychical abuse is a tricky one to treat. I was spanked as a child for either doing some thing wrong or misbehaving. My mother endured psychial abuse by her father both emotionally and psychially. At times she say things that are hurtful when upset as the result of her upbringing. She hasn’t laid her hands in me since I was 10 but the damage is already done. All I can do is forgive her for what happens. She has apologized for what happened other children won’t be as lucky to hear it

    My exchildhood friend suffered from it much worse by her own mother. It resulted in a custody battle with her grand parents. My other point is it can be hard to seek help depending on the severity of the situation. She was often thrown out of the house at times. Neglected or to having to fend for herself. The mother should had been jailed or handed her legal rights over sooner. She had a history of Mental Health Issues and was a Drug Addict. A problem child to boot since I never heard anything about her grand parents being the same way.

  • I don’t really appreciate the assumption that being homeschooled means you have no social skills. It’s a really bad stereotype that isn’t always true. I was homeschooled and my parents didn’t isolate me from social activities and making friends. I would even go as far as to say that they kept me from having to deal with toxic high school situations.

  • I think this program is good for the kids because they count learn there lesson because they know that going too a counselor won’t help so the parents are are like I can’t deal with this anymore so the parents go too the police too get help and it’s for their children’s own good because they love them

  • Don’t have children until you have fixed yourself. If you have bi polar, BPD or CPTSD ect, do not have kids unless you can resolve these issues in yourself.

  • My goal would be to work my ass off, to make sure that when they reached adulthood, they would be able to say that their childhood was amazing and non traumatizing. Over flowing with lovely memories and fun anecdotes. And that they know that they are perfect just the way they are. And for them to feel capable and independent as hell. ������

  • 2:00
    I see anime references and minecraft youtuber references.
    Amane and tsukasa’s yorishiro?
    Dream’s picture?
    And I forgot who that is but he’s a minecraft youtuber I guess
    Is that a mokke plushie?

    2:55
    Is that kid holding a mokke plushie?

  • Growing up my mom was very protective of me, idk if it was because of all the bullying I received in school or what. My dad he was kinda verbally abusive to me and my mom but at the same time he wanted me to be able to do things on my own and gain independence we bonded over video games..I miss him…… he has sadly passed away.

  • Thats one of the reason I decided not to have Children, Some of us are just too broken to have that sort of responsabilty with an innocent human being.

  • True that childhood can affect parenting but it’s also not true my parents are trying to take care of me but doing it wrong and im going to try to do it right

  • I don’t do this with my friends XD we always interrupt each other of if something sounds stupid, we say shutthefuckup����(for stupid conversations)

  • Takes more than just making your kids feel loved to raise a kid effectively tho, if you don’t push them farther than they are comfortable with then they’ll never get out of their comfort zone

  • I was abuse during childhood, this broke me and to be honest, I think the best way to end the cycle of abuse is for me to not have children. I dont think I can be better than my parents, aside who would want shitty DNA from me? it would be horrible to have those Gene’s

  • Ha, jokes on you I won’t live that long.
    On a more serious note: I really don’t see myself making a family. Heck, I really can’t feel any love for someone romantically or love in general.

  • ….im still subscribed for some reason. Hoping ill find it helpful one day I guess. I often have trouble relating to these topics… my father killed a woman and then himself for my 15th birthday about 20 years back.

    Fast forward married with an child and one alcoholic wife that had issues. I consult my sister karen (her real first name) and she drives up to our place 300 miles from her home to have lunch with my wife, to give her 5000 dollars and advice on how to lie to me to take my son away. Been 7 years now. Ive given up everything to remain in my sons life, my job, my home, my car and all my worldly possessions that i couldnt fit in a back pack, but all that said, i am one of the lucky ones and even though she won full custody cause quebec law, i remain in my sons life. Many fathers still struggle.

    So that’s me. That’s my life. I try to draw hope and strength from any and every source i can, so i remain subscribed in the hopes of finding support.

  • Who’s��‍♂️ with me that people should be educated on mental�� awareness with people like Psych2Go in institutions like schools,hospitals e.t.c. because the internet is a resource that many people can’t reach.

  • I am gonna be honest and might sound like a bitch but…..my friend continuously posts about her being depressed and having anxiety in Instagram that I don’t know what to believe in. I tried helping her and told her to go to a doctor and get help but the only thing she did is self diagnose herself and now she says that she has anxiety and depression…. during our online classes, she can actually talk and also show her face nicely to the teacher though, she also doesn’t have any problem with socialising so…… someone please help me….

  • All I want to say is WHAT THE HELL!? THEY GET TORTURED ALL THEY DID WAS 1 SMALL THING AND NOTHING CHANGE THEM THEY ARE ONLY TORTURING HIM BY INMATES CURSING AT KIDS, BEING MEAN, etc

  • Hello cool caterpillar ��! Your so cool! He’s cool at crawling around at 0:39 0:43, 1:18 1:43, 2:02 2:16 and 3:48 3:55. Good job caterpillar ��!

  • One thing for SURE I will not tell my children is that I used to go through jungle to get to school….. or that I used to study like a bat with no lights……

  • ITS NOT GOOD.. SMH. HOWWW. WHY DON’T THEY HELP BOTH PARENTS AND KIDS. I GET TIRED OF THIS SHIT LIKE KIDS JUST RAISE THEMSELFS OR WHAT.

  • it’s nice to finally find someone on youtube that understands that not all parents are benevilant angels who deserve all the love and respect in the world, just because they non-consetually forced you into a life of misery, just because their selfish ass wanted something to brag to their friends about, or because they wanted some way to give their depressive life meaning, without even a second thought about if they can provide a suitible envirement for a kid

  • I’m disappointed with your statement. Homeschooling doesn’t prevent children from gaining social skills. I expected better from you.

  • Simple. Take them to a homeless shelter. Tell her if she thinks life is a joke, welcome to your future.

    Note: Reality is the best teacher.

    Look up ” Tiger Mother “. Read that book. Works wonders.

  • WTF…THIS IS HOW KIDS USUALLY ACT! THEY ARE KIDS AND THERES NOTHING ANYBODY CAN DO TO CHABGE THAT! DO THEY NO KNOW THAT CHILDHOOD TRAUMA COULD ACTUALLY LEAD PSYCHOPATHIC AND SOCIOPATHIC BEHAVIOR!? THIS DISGUSTS ME!

  • My mother was distracted and obsessed by my father who is narcissistic and hated the attention going to his own children. So she was unable to love us as she wanted to and it definitely affected me as an adult. But I’m a very caring, understanding, invested mother because I understand before a tree can become a tree is first has to be a seed and start. How it is nurtured will determine the state of the tree.

  • Physical abuse and Emotinal abuse brings so much pain and shame,no matter what you went through you have to face it and free yourself so you won’t hurt others…

  • How does childhood trauma affect parenting?
    ��Parents who had severe trauma, stresses in childhood more likely to have kids with behavioral health problems. Summary: A new study finds that severe childhood trauma and stresses early in parents’ lives are linked to higher rates of behavioral health problems in their own children.

  • If I’m being honest I use to HATE HATE the idea of kids or being a mom because of my parents, I didn’t realize that I was using my pain and resentment into destroying the idea of me being a mom, I’m still getting use to being open it to it but now I’m 1/2 I just didn’t want to bring my kids to this world just to suffer, like I did because there was a lot of nights. I wonder why I was born, if I was just being hurt:( it was very hard to me to get out of this mentality because also my mom a lot of times would ask if I wanted a sister( I’m the older one & only girl) and I’ll get so defensive and mad at that, I’ll say like I don’t want another thing in way which is very harsh(I can’t remember the word exactly because I’d say it in Spanish) but it was because my logic was that since my parents always neglected me and basically never wanted me to show emotions. In my head it looked like if I get a sister I’ll have to fight harder for the little love I get:// which it’s not that great to think and I use to think worse things but we won’t get into that:,) also I’m 17 so I have grown a little, I’m still very young but I know I just wanna fixed myself before I move on to bigger things

  • That’s great! What is the name of the software that you use to produce this wonderful content? I am planning to create some contents for my students

  • WSJ you do not provide “real news” nor are you “real journalists” you refuse to apologise for misrepresentations, you refuse to acknowledge your own staff’s hypocrisy, and you refuse to attempt to give subjects of reports the chance to be heard prior to release of reports.
