BETWEEN is a modern guide for parents of 8-13 year-olds - also known as 'tweenagers'.

* Speaking to your child about racism, sexism and homophobia/transphobia

* Issues at school - including motivation, revision, homework, coping with workload, school related anxiety and bullying
* How to encourage good mental health and support children with common emotional issues (including climate change anxiety)
* Friendships and peer pressure - their impact and how to help if they go wrong, or are toxic. Encouraging individuality and coping with comparison.
