Kids and Pre-Teens 

If you’ve been following the advice in the baby section of our website, kids and pre-teens will be the easiest ages when it comes to raising kids. If you’ve been winging it, that last statement could easily feel like a joke.

Kids between the age of 5 and 12 can be such a joy. They are curious and helpful and willing to learn something new every day. This is the time in their lives when they will learn respect and appreciation. They will learn a lot about their parents in these years, observing and attempting to mimic. They learn the most from example when they are still considered kids. It also happens to be the time in their lives when they are the most compliant, which makes it the best time to teach rules and responsibility, as well as introduce them to increased levels of independence.

We hope to help guide you in your role as the parent of these little sponge-brain humans. Contributing to the conversation is encouraged, as usual. Please do so in the comments section. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask and if we cannot answer we will point you in the direction of someone who can.

Happy Parenting!
