Wellness Shot: Positive Parenting Tips For Parents Of Tweens

Every day around 6:40 am I like to share with you some lifestyle information that I call your 'wellness shot.'

If your child is around 10, this is the time to start teaching them how to make good choices when they are out in the world.. Friends are becoming more important, more influential, and peer pressure is going up. If you are a parent of a 'tween' here's a few tips for you:

-Spend time with your child. Talk to them about their friends.

-Get to know their friend group. Chaperone a school event so you can see who hangs around them including the teacher

-Help your child to think about their own accomplishments. Saying things like "YOU must be proud of yourself." This will help your child encourage themselves for good choices.
