Book Recommendations for Parents of Pre-Teens

Having Trouble Raising Your Pre-Teen? These Books Might Help

As your kids grow up, they go through different phases in their lives. As a parent, you want to be there as much as you can to help them navigate through the challenges they’ll find in school, dealing with their friends, and their other relationships.

Like many parents and guardians, you may find yourself at a loss in dealing with your children especially when they’re about to enter their teenage years. You may find that your experiences when you were a pre-teen would not be reflective of their experiences now, considering the massive exposure of today’s kids to technology and social media that were not there yet during your time.

Here are 5 books that can help you guide your kids through their transition into adulthood.

1. Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions to Adulthood

As your child enters adolescence, this book written by Lisa Damour, PhD. will help you decode the meaning behind your girl’s sometimes erratic behavior and what motivates these actions. The book will help you understand your child better and watch out for red flags along the way.

3. The Teenage Brain: A Neuroscientist’s Survival Guide to Raising Adolescents and Young Adults

If you’re looking for a book that will give you a peek into what’s going on inside your kid’s mind, this might be it. Frances E. Jensen, MD uses her research, clinical and practical experience in raising her kids to come up with practical and helpful advice for both parents and teens.

4. Most Likely to Succeed: Preparing Our Kids for the Innovation Era
