When children head towards the end of their primary school years, and start to transition into high school, it is a huge shift for them. Not only are they developing physically, but their brain is rapidly changing each year they get older. This brings an array of behaviours and actions, some of which you, as the parent, may not understand. Therapist Lana Jaff talks through those tween years, and helps parents understand their brain and why they may be doing what they do. Why they may have a sudden outburst or do something out of character. She uncovers some great advice to help you navigate this period with your tweenager.

Stay tuned for Part 2 of this tween series, as Lana provides some at home solutions for parents.
