Middle Schoolers: The Most Maligned And Misunderstood Age Group Play Therapy Parenting Podcast

    • Parenting

One of the parents at my center sent me an article by Deborah Farmer Kris titled: "Your middle school child is the most amazing person." I loved this author's perspective on middle schoolers and wanted to give a play therapy perspective.
 
The author makes four points in the article that I add play therapy-based insight on:
 
Middle schoolers are a jumble of contradictions
Let your face light up
Don't take their outbursts personally
Remember that your child is listening
