Middle School. What else do you say about what may possibly be the toughest years for you and your kids. Really middle school can be the worst! There will be friendship drama, bullying, growing academic pressure, self-esteem issues and oh yeah, puberty. The best thing you can do when parenting middle school kids is just to be there for them. Find ways to support their interests, bond with them binging Netflix tv shows or movies or listening to podcasts and music together. Whatever it takes, just know these years will pass and you both will not be sorry to say goodbye to middle school.
