Middle Years Children

Middle Years Children - Manitoba Parent Zone - Healthy Child Manitoba

Sometimes referred to as "tweens," children in their middle years from about age nine to 13 are developing an increased sense of independence and empathy as their emotional understanding improves. Parents are becoming less central as the focus on peers becomes more intense.

Use this online information and links to community resources to help you stay on top of everything your child needs to stay healthy and happy in the middle years.
