Tweens, Porcupines, and Good Advice

     I can never be sensitive enough to those parents of 9- through 13-year old children.  It is such a difficult age for the children AND parents.  I was reintroduced to the above books recently, and they reminded me of the challenges of the tween years — those middle school years.  Here are some links to the books.
     Don't be surprised when you read the first chapter of Porcupine and the introduction to Our Last Best Shot to see that they are almost identical.  The former is about a boy and the latter is about a girl, nevertheless they have similar characteristics.
     The books are all must-reads for parents with children who are approaching these sensitive years in life.  Do yourself a favor and read at least one of them.
