The Tween Academy, sponsored by Unilever, offers parents live forums to discuss important topics involved in raising tweens.
The conversation was led by parenting expert and New York Times bestselling author of Queen Bees and Wannabes, Rosalind Wiseman.
In our discussion, we shared best practices for keeping open lines of communication with our tweens, ways to overcome communication challenges, and how to let our kids know we are on their side.
Chatting with other moms definitely reminds you theat you're not alone in this endeavor. It was great to share tips with other tech savvy moms on how to compete for our kids' attention over text messaging and Facebook. It was also great to have validation that I'm not "the meanest mom on the planet" for not letting my two under 13 kids have a Facebook account and requiring full access to their text messages.
The Motherhood also does a great job recapping the conversation for those who missed it. You can also follow the ongoing discussion by following Don't Fret the Sweat on Facebook!

- Rosalind Wiseman’s books Queen Bees and Wannabes and Boys, Girls & Other Hazardous Materials
