  • 12-15 is pre-teen. 15 is the crossover from pre-teen to teen.

  • Well since they are teens when they are thirteen, pre-teen is 9-12. Though I consider a tween to be 11 and 12.

  • Wow, there is a big jump in some of our views. I really think that 13 is decent to say till they are 15-16 to be considered real teens.
