Helping Your Child through Early Adolescence
US Department of Education
Early adolescence can be a difficult time for children and parents alike. While adolescents are feeling insecure in their identity and abilities, parents may feel unprepared for the challenges that arise as their children mature. However, parents should know that they have an important influence on their children at this stage of development. This brochure was drawn from the larger booklet in the Helping Your Child series, "Helping Your Child through Early Adolescence" (ED503159). Based on the latest research in adolescent development and learning, this booklet addresses parents' questions, provides suggestions, and tackles issues that parents of young adolescents (ages 10 through 14) generally find most challenging. A list of resources from the U.S. Department of Education and other organizations is also included.
