Tween Academy #DontFretTheSweat [Join Me!]

This year Johnny turns 11. He’s in the 5th grade. That alone should tell you where we are with the dramatics. Everything is becoming a big deal. Last year was the beginning of the changes but this year it’s on and it’s strong. I try to do all I can to be support and help him realize and distinguish the things that are important and the ones that he shouldn’t bother with.

It’s the first year in school that he changes classrooms. He has more homework then he’s use to in past years. His sports have taken on the competitiveness where it matters about winning more then anything. He’s also taking guitar lessons after school and about to start band with the drums as well. He has so much on his plate and making sure that he is handling it all well my job. It’s all stuff he loves and wants to be doing so it’s about finding a schedule he can handle.

Join us in as we talk over at TheMotherhood about the transition on heading back to school with our tweens tomorrow at 12 non EST.
