Living with Children in Transition: Resources for Parents of Pre and Early Adolescents.
James, Shirley M.
This paper discusses some commonly recognized characteristics of preadolescent and early adolescent youngsters and the needs which underlie them, and describes the variety of resources available to the parent who seeks to understand, guide, and live in harmony with a young person who has begun the transition from child to young adult. Characteristics discussed pertain to physical growth and change, mental maturation, and social and emotional behavior typical of the age group. Needs associated with each area are delineated. The resources discussed include some which reside within parents themselves and others which are available within the local community. (Author/JMB)
