Tips for Parents of Kids and Teens

Kids go through a lot of development during their school-aged years, from early elementary all the way into high school. As a parent, it’s easy to feel like just when you get used to one phase, here comes another. With a fifth-grader, say, you might be wondering if you should worry about that bruise and fielding questions about romantic relationships at the same time.
