tween girls

They share some characteristics of teenagers as they are becoming them, such as, sometimes, changing bodies, growing interest in the opposite or same gender, etc., and they differ from younger children in that they are not, usually, primarily occupied with play.[6] Although they may appear like teens, abstract thought is almost nonexistent[citation needed], which makes rebellion as tweens rare and they tend to be conformist, especially with the media.
Literature suggests that when children reach their tween years (8–12 years old), they begin to develop unique social needs and desires, and reveal distinctive hopes, dreams, and expectations for the future.

Tween girls, otherwise known as 9- to 12-year-olds, are in their last throes of girlhood.
We picked gifts for tween girls that are as lively, fun and silly as they are.
Tween girls are one of the most difficult categories of people to shop for.
You can’t just sidle up to a tween boy (ages 9 to 12) and say, "Hey, you’re on the cusp of manhood." He will pretend to throw up.
6) Be aware that tween girls usually harbor great anxiety about adolescence.  One study found that tween boys looked forward to adolescence and the strength, power, independence and prestige they would develop.  Tween girls, on the other hand, dreaded adolescence, fearing menstruation, their new vulnerability to men, and the pressure to be sexy and attractive.  Most girls don’t know how to put these anxieties into words, but they feel them, even as they beg to wear skimpy outfits so they’ll be “cool.” Your daughter may want to be a hottie so the other kids will be impressed with her, but inside she knows full well that she isn’t ready for the attention that will bring.
The bad news is that your tween’s developing body is flooded by hormones, her brain is rewiring, her need to discover herself and her place in the world takes precedence over the other things she values (like her family and schoolwork), and she probably can’t acknowledge how much she still loves and needs you, because she’s working hard to feel "grown up" and independent.  The good news is that if you can accept this new situation and adjust your parenting accordingly, the tween years are the perfect time to strengthen your relationship before she heads into the teen years.
15) Don’t stop being physically close.  Your preteen daughter’s body is growing into womanhood, but she is still your little girl, and she still needs your physical closeness.  If you find yourself uncomfortable about holding her, observe your own anxiety and find a safe place to talk about it and work it out.  But don’t withhold from your daughter the touch all humans need.  You don’t want her looking for in all the wrong places.
7) Be sure your daughter is getting nine hours of sleep each night, as an absolute minimum.  Most preteens begin to find it harder to fall asleep at night.  But when kids stay up late, their stress hormones like cortisol kick in, which makes it harder to fall asleep.  The problem is that cortisol stays in the system and makes them edgy the next day; it also contributes to depression, anxiety, and weight gain.
The lure of social media sites can be strong, especially if other kids are on them.  Facebook has a rule that users must be 13 so getting a Facebook account when you’re under 13 requires lying, which is enough reason for parents to nix it.  (This is one of the few times the culture will support you in your parenting, so take advantage of it.) It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the tech culture of your child and her friends; you can start here for some suggested Internet Smarts: Keeping Your Kids Safe Onlineparent-friendly websites on raising web-savvy kids.
Your daughter is hungry for information about love and sex.  Talking about it won’t make her rush out and do it.  In fact, the opposite is true.  Kids who don’t have strong connections with their parents are the ones looking for love in all the wrong places.  You want your daughter to feel great about her body so she isn’t looking to prove herself with choices that will shame her later.
If you can find appropriate ways to give your daughter independence, she won’t have to rebel against you to start standing on her own two feet.  Of course she’ll make mistakes.  That’s how humans learn.  And of course she isn’t ready to make all her decisions.  You’re still the parent.  Deciding how much to weigh in is the hardest part of this parenting dance.
Parents often ask me how to get along with their suddenly volatile preteen daughter.  It’s a shock when your previously sweet little girl starts tantrumming again.  Twelve year old girls can be moody, over-dramatizing, self-centered, focused almost solely on friends, close-mouthed, surly, back-talking and condescending to parents.  They can, of course, also be mature, affectionate and delightful, but at their worst they’re a cross between the most challenging aspects of toddlers and teens.
If, instead, we walk away angry, our daughters feel wounded, misunderstood, alienated.  They attack us, or build up resentment and distrust.  A rift appears in the relationship, and if we don’t respond quickly, it widens.  But if, instead, we can back up, breathe, apologize, pay attention, and reconnect, we build bridges.  The inevitable ruptures of daily life become opportunities to teach them so many lessons: how to process their emotions, how to repair an emotional rift, how to problem solve, that they can trust us.  Most importantly, we end the interaction with a stronger relationship.
9) Nurture your daughter’s passions.  Anything she really cares about and can throw herself into is protective, a place to feel competent, a place to push herself and learn resilience, a place to lose herself when the arrows of outrageous fortune pierce too deeply.  Does she like to dance?  Write?  Draw?  Do whatever it takes to encourage her.  It’s critical that this be something she is drawn to, of course, not something her parents are pushing.
My girls seem to be tougher than he is, he THINKS he’s the BIG BROTHER to all 3, until one of them gets mad at him, and he becomes the DRAMA KING and “no one likes him”, “no one wants to be his friend”, “the sisters said he can’t come in their rooms anymore”, etc.
My brother remarked to each house my mother found something along the line of: “You’re killing me, I think I am going to die.” Really? You are 40 years old and your parents wants to pay for your vacation and take you to the beach.
I already knew I was screwed, thanks for confirming it My 8 year old already shares in “many personality disorder,” my 4 year old is getting there, and my 2 year old is watching by to see how it’s all done.
My seeing & reading this couldn’t have been more timely!! I have an 11–yr-old girl & she was telling me how lately she feels like she has multiple personalities.
But I think you forgot to add that she can go from Miss know it all to having amnesia (sorry for the spelling, had to hit the rum pretty early) Amnesia – any age, this one can’t remember anything you tell her but can remember anytime you haven’t fulfilled her every whim.Which eventually results with The devil’s twin visiting.
I’ve had other terms for it (God Help Me), but good to know it’s not just my girl.
I have a 10 year old girl she has been having (at least) 7 personalities for almost a year now.
I’ve always wanted a girl, but am finished having children after 2 boys (I’m 39, and my youngest is 7mo).

She looks exactly like the BFF or the Sweetheart but when you speak to her burning acid shoots out of her mouth and does not stop until you flee the room, screaming profanities.
Often confused with the Drama Queen, this child believes every single, itty, bitty, teeny, weeny injury is a near-death experience.
This woman goes with me to get manicures, chats over lattes at Starbucks (always my treat), and goes out of her way to listen to my problems and help in any way possible.
However, she does not need to be injured to believe the world is ending.
Please note, the Drama Queen can instantly transform into the Devil’s Twin without any warning or notice.
To make what was a juvenile, childish girl’s room more appropriate for a growing tween, its walls were painted a deep shade of violet, album cover-inspired art was hung to create a focal point, vintage lighting was installed on the ceilings and the walls, and women’s fashion fabrics were used in upholstered accents.

Two of those in Slender Man’s spell were Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier, both 12, who were charged Monday with trying to stab a 12-year-old classmate to death in a sick attempt to play out the character’s storyline in real life.
Anissa told police she was shocked at first by the idea, but went along because she loved Slender Man and believed he was real.

At some point during the tween years, a girl will begin to experience the stages of puberty.
For more information on tween issues and helping tweens through puberty, middle school and the challenges of growing up, subscribe to the Tween Parenting newsletter.
Some may be excited about puberty, others may wish that things didn’t change and that they didn’t have to deal with growth spurts, bras, and monthly periods.
Keep in mind that these stages may appear gradually, and it may take three to four years for your child to cycle through all the phases of puberty.
Also, remind your tween that puberty is a normal part of growing up, and that everyone, including you, has been through it or will go through it one day.
Be sure to support your child through these changes, and avoid making too much of a big deal of puberty.
