My Tween and Me
Building self-esteem in pre-teens, strengthening confidence in parents.
My Tween and Me is a facilitated group program that provides parents and their tweens with the knowledge, tools and support they need during the child’s transition to adolescence. Offered to parents/caregivers and their children aged 7 through 12, the program strengthens parent-child communication and supports parents in building a positive relationship with their tween.
My Tween and Me helps develop parents’ confidence and ability to positively influence and support their children. Through eight group sessions, MTM provides interactive learning opportunities that:
- Enhance knowledge of tween growth and development
- Build effective communication skills for both parents and tweens
- Promote positive youth development
- Foster strong family and community relationships
My Tween and Me uses the most up-to-date research and evidence-based parenting information to address the critical areas of tween relationships and development: home and family; school and friends; community; and the wider world of media and technology.
Maria Morisseau is the My Tween and Me Program coordinator, and is responsible for supporting community programming and inquiries.
