definition of tween

The tween group is 9-12. I have an 8.5 yr old daughter but would never consider her a tween with tween issues. She is currently in 2nd grade. I think a tween would be 5-6/7th grade. Maybe 4th grade if your child is socially advanced.

What are your thoughts???

  • Honestly, "tween" is a new word and I think it's stupid. My girl is 9, soon to be 10. I told her she is a KID until she hits 13, at which time she'll be a teenager. We're skipping the "tween" designation.

  • My daughter is 9 and in 3rd grade. She acts like she is 9 going on 13. I don't really consider her a tween yet.

  • My daughter is 9 and in 4th grade. I would absolutely consider her a "tween". She is not a teenager, but she is not a little girl anymore (as in a little girl who plays with barbies, etc.) She likes to experiment with make-up, hair, clothes, talks about drama at school, etc. Sometimes I think she acts way older than her age....then she asks me a question that makes me smile and I realize how young she still is :)
