So, what age is a tween you might ask? Well, the term ‘tween used be used for kids a few years before they turned 13 (which would be an actual teenager). So the group of kids from about 10- to 12-years of age are considered tweens.

But now a days, I notice a lot of young girls who are around age 7 or 8,  being lured into this ‘tween category and mind-set. This is the age I like to refer to as a ‘Pre Tween.

As a mom of a 7 and a 1/2 year old daughter this is our daily struggle! While I love watching her grow and becoming so independent and smart I also want to protect her innocence and childhood. Of course every parents situation is different but in our personal world I don’t really see this pre tween phase happening as much with the boys as I do the girls.

And if you are a mom of a tween or a pre tween then I am sure you are aware of the drama, tears and sassiness and some days just straight out disrespect they can bring to your life. However, all drama aside I love my little pre tween and have found a lot of great ways to encourage and empower her along the way! So the first thing I want to introduce to you is the Strong Self box.

Let me introduce ya’ll to Wendy!

I met Wendy in a mops group when my daughter was only 3 years old. At the time, I didn’t really need her help and wisdom since my current situation was a newborn baby and a very sweet yet busy 3 year old daughter.

However, I connected with her and loved her story and I loved what she had to say! Over the years we have kept in touch, mostly through social media and her weekly emails. I am now in a place where everything she says is relatable and I am so excited to share her work with you. Especially if you need some extra love, support or help right now! 


She’s amazing you guys! She has so much to offer, including lots of free workshops, podcasts and even free printable guides! There is also a paid community membership program for families looking for Positive Parenting support, guidance, inspiration, and connection.
