Presented by Rachel Doherty, Tweens to Teen provides parents with plenty of ideas to make the better days outweigh the difficult ones! We know that living and working with teens and tweens can be hard work!

Here is some more information about Rachel.
You might be a parent, a teacher, a grandparent, a school support worker, a youth worker, a carer, a community worker If you sometimes get stumped about life as a 10 to 20 year old, my mission is to give you some information and strategies to get around that and make your relationships with modern adolescents thrive.
I live in Brisbane, Australia, with my husband of 20 years and our three delightful teenagers.
Yes, they really are delightful! I would trade anything to be able to spend more time with them playing a board game, chatting as we share a family meal or exploring a corner of the world together for the first time.
Outside my bedroom window is a beautiful frangipani tree. During the cooler months, its just a bare collection of sticks and its really easy to look through it and not see it. But during the summer months, its the first thing I see every morning. The leaves are so green and the blossoms so white; its like a cluster of smiles welcoming me to the new day. Living and working with adolescents is much the same, some days can be pretty barren and others are full of hope and optimism. Its my goal that through tweens2teen youll find plenty of ideas to make the better days outweigh the difficult ones.
