Middle School

In middle school your child's relationships begin to change dramatically.  Self-images are in flux.  Friends and peers become enormously important.  Children travel in flocks.  What other children think makes a huge difference to your child.  Parents take a back seat, except where transportation is concerned.  Sexuality is starting to emerge, especially among the girls, and some children are even being exposed to drugs.  It's a confusing time for children as well as for parents.  Older children feel like kings of the heap, but high school is looming and soon they'll be at the bottom of the ladder again.
