Early adolescence can be a challenging time for children and parents alike. Parents often feel unprepared and they may view the years from 10through 14 as a time just "to get through." However, research and common sense tell us that this view is very limited. During the earlyadolescent years, parents and families can greatly influence the growth and development of their children. We sell our children short if we expectlittle from them and we sell ourselves short if we believe that we have no influence.
