The beginning of a new school year brings excitement and anticipation for a fresh start, but can also lead to many stressful situations for our kids like taking a difficult test or trying out for a sports team. For tweens dealing with the transition from child to teenager, heading back to school can prove even more challenging. Between handling issues with friends and relationships, dealing with difficult teachers and worrying about getting good grades, tweens have a lot on their plates.
As parents, finding ways to navigate these moments and keep our tweens' confidence up this fall can be tough. And as tweens enter puberty and become increasingly self-conscious about their appearance and identity, starting a dialogue with your child proves all the more important. Especially given that, according to the Unilever Tween Confidence Index, the majority (69%) of tweens find talks with their parents very helpful when it comes to dealing with the pressures and challenges they face every day.
Unilever hopes to help parents and tweens alike feel prepared with tips, confidence-building tools and more information about the Tween Confidence Index at DontFretTheSweat.com.
