The 411:

This month during lunch I sat down to read The Ultimate Guide to Raising Teens and Tweens: Strategies for Unlocking Your Child’s Full Potential. I tried not to fill it with highlighter, post-its or paperclips and resorted to just jotting down some of the take away points that resonated with me.

I am in the midst of tweendom and teendom with my two babies and anything that will help me help them is important to me.  Douglas Haddad has created the perfect bible for parents of Teens and Tweens. It is broken down by sections that you will expect and some you didn't even think of.
