Parenting a tween boy is an interesting experience. Suddenly my talkative little boys turned into grunting, one-word speaking, tweens with moods that are all over the board. I never thought I’d say this but sometimes I miss the days when they would cry their eyes out over something silly because at least I knew what they were thinking.
Tween boys need a little help expressing themselves sometimes. I love how just a little bit of direction can help move kids into something that may become their new favorite hobby. My boys tend to default to electronics whenever they don’t know what to do. That doesn’t do much for helping them find new interests, so I guide them a bit.
