Parenting Your Tenth Grader: A Guide to Making the Most of the 'Why Not?' Phase
MAKE THE MOST OF EVERY PHASE IN YOUR CHILD'S LIFE
You have approximately 936 weeks from the time your child is born until he or she graduates from high school. It goes by fast, and kids change and grow so quickly. It's as if they change just as you're starting to figure them out. It all makes the responsibility to shape a child's faith and character feel overwhelming.
Parenting Your Tenth Grader is a concise guide that simplifies what you need to know about tenth graders in general and offers interactive ways to discover more about your own tenth grader to help you make the most of this phase.
- what's changing about your sophomore over the next 52 weeks,
- the 6 things your child needs most,
- and 4 conversations to have in this phase.
About the Phase Guides
Parenting Your Tenth Grader is part of a series of books designed especially for busy people. These guides are more than a "journal" but less than a detailed "manual." Use this book to look ahead at key ways your child will be growing this year: physically, mentally, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. Jot down thoughts and observations to help you make the most of this phase.
For more, check out other books in this series: Don't Miss It, a concise volume to help you parent every week like it counts, and It's Just a Phase, an in-depth look at each phase, especially for church leaders. These resources are designed in partnership with Parent Cue (ParentCue.org).
About the Phase Project
The Phase Project, including this guide, is a synthesis of personal experience, academic research, and gatherings of leaders and educational experts from across the child development spectrum.
