Middle childhood brings many changes in a child’s life. By this time, children can dress themselves, catch a ball more easily using only their hands, and tie their shoes. Having independence from family becomes more important now. Events such as starting school bring children this age into regular contact with the larger world. Friendships become more and more important. Physical, social, and mental skills develop quickly at this time. This is a critical time for children to develop confidence in all areas of life, such as through friends, schoolwork, and sports.

Emotional/Social Changes

Show more independence from parents and family.

Start to think about the future.

Understand more about his or her place in the world.

Pay more attention to friendships and teamwork.

Want to be liked and accepted by friends.

Cognitive (Thinking and Learning)

Show rapid development of mental skills.

Learn better ways to describe experiences and talk about thoughts and feelings.

Have less focus on one’s self and more concern for others.

Positive Parenting Tips

Show affection for your child. Recognize his/her accomplishments.

Help your child develop a sense of responsibility—ask him/her to help with household tasks, such as setting the table.

Talk with your child about school, friends, and things he/she looks forward to.

Talk with your child about respecting others. Encourage him/her to help people in need.

Help your child set his/her own achievable goals.

Help your child learn patience by letting others go first or by finishing a task before going out to play.

Make clear rules and stick to them, such as how long your child can watch TV or when he/she has to go to bed. Be clear about what behavior is okay and what is not okay.

Do fun things together as a family, such as playing games, reading, and going to events in your community.


Your child’s growing independence from the family and interest in friends might be obvious by now. Healthy friendships are very important to your child’s development, but peer pressure can become strong during this time. Children who feel good about themselves are more able to resist negative peer pressure and make better choices for themselves. This is an important time for children to gain a sense of responsibility along with their growing independence. Also, physical changes of puberty might be showing by now, especially for girls. Another big change children need to prepare for during this time is starting middle or junior high school.

Emotional/Social Changes

Start to form stronger, more complex friendships and peer relationships. It becomes more emotionally important to have friends, especially of the same sex.

Experience more peer pressure.

Become more aware of his body as puberty approaches. Body image and eating problems sometimes start around this age.

Cognitive (Thinking and Learning)

Face more academic challenges at school.

Become more independent from the family.

Begin to see the point of view of others more clearly.

Have an increased attention span.

Positive Parenting Tips

Spend time with your child. Talk with him/her about his/her friends, his/her accomplishments, and what challenges he/she will face.

Be involved with your child’s school. Go to school events; meet your child’s teachers.

Encourage your child to join school and community groups, such as a sports team, or to be a volunteer for a charity.

Help your child develop his/her own sense of right and wrong. Talk with him/her about risky things friends might pressure him to do, like smoking or dangerous physical dares.

Help your child develop a sense of responsibility—involve your child in household tasks like cleaning and cooking. Talk with your child about saving and spending money wisely.

Meet the families of your child’s friends.

Talk with your child about respecting others. Encourage him/her to help people in need. Talk with him/her about what to do when others are not kind or are disrespectful.

Help your child set his/her own goals. Encourage him/her to think about skills and abilities he/she would like to have and about how to develop them.

Make clear rules and stick to them. Talk with your child about what you expect from him/her (behavior) when no adults are present. If you provide reasons for rules, it will help him/her to know what to do in most situations.


This is a time of many physical, mental, emotional, and social changes. Hormones change as puberty begins. Most boys grow facial and pubic hair and their voices deepen. Most girls grow pubic hair and breasts, and start their period. They might be worried about these changes and how they are looked at by others. This also will be a time when your teen might face peer pressure to use alcohol, tobacco products, and drugs, and to have sex. Other challenges can be eating disorders, depression, and family problems. At this age, teens make more of their own choices about friends, sports, studying, and school. They become more independent, with their own personality and interests, although parents are still very important.

Emotional/Social Changes

Show more concern about body image, looks, and clothes.

Focus on themselves; going back and forth between high expectations and lack of confidence.

Experience more moodiness.

Show more interest in and influence by peer group.

Express less affection toward parents; sometimes might seem rude or short-tempered.

Feel stress from more challenging school work.

Develop eating problems.

Feel a lot of sadness or depression, which can lead to poor grades at school, alcohol or drug use, unsafe sex, and other problems.

Cognitive (Thinking and Learning)

Have more ability for complex thought.

Be better able to express feelings through talking.

Develop a stronger sense of right and wrong.

Positive Parenting Tips

Be honest and direct with your teen when talking about sensitive subjects such as drugs, drinking, smoking, and sex.

Meet and get to know your teen’s friends.

Show an interest in your teen’s school life.

Help your teen make healthy choices while encouraging him to make his own decisions.

Respect your teen’s opinions and take into account her thoughts and feelings. It is important that she knows you are listening to her.

When there is a conflict, be clear about goals and expectations (like getting good grades, keeping things clean, and showing respect), but allow your teen input on how to reach those goals (like when and how to study or clean).


This is a time of changes for how teenagers think, feel, and interact with others, and how their bodies grow. Most girls will be physically mature by now, and most will have completed puberty. Boys might still be maturing physically during this time. Your teen might have concerns about her body size, shape, or weight. Eating disorders also can be common, especially among girls. During this time, your teen is developing his unique personality and opinions. Relationships with friends are still important, yet your teen will have other interests as he develops a more clear sense of who he is. This is also an important time to prepare for more independence and responsibility; many teenagers start working, and many will be leaving home soon after high school.

Emotional/Social Changes

Have more interest in romantic relationships and sexuality.

Go through less conflict with parents.

Show more independence from parents.

Have a deeper capacity for caring and sharing and for developing more intimate relationships.

Spend less time with parents and more time with friends.

Feel a lot of sadness or depression, which can lead to poor grades at school, alcohol or drug use, unsafe sex, and other problems.

Cognitive (Thinking and Learning)

Learn more defined work habits.

Show more concern about future school and work plans.

Be better able to give reasons for their own choices, including about what is right or wrong.

Positive Parenting Tips

Talk with your teen about her concerns and pay attention to any changes in her behavior. Ask her if she has had suicidal thoughts, particularly if she seems sad or depressed. Asking about suicidal thoughts will not cause her to have these thoughts, but it will let her know that you care about how she feels. Seek professional help if necessary.

Show interest in your teen’s school and extracurricular interests and activities and encourage him to become involved in activities such as sports, music, theater, and art.

Encourage your teen to volunteer and become involved in civic activities in her community.

Compliment your teen and celebrate his efforts and accomplishments.

Show affection for your teen. Spend time together doing things you enjoy.

Respect your teen’s opinion. Listen to her without playing down her concerns.

Encourage your teen to develop solutions to problems or conflicts. Help your teenager learn to make good decisions. Create opportunities for him to use his own judgment, and be available for advice and support.

If your teen engages in interactive internet media such as games, chat rooms, and instant messaging, encourage her to make good decisions about what she posts and the amount of time she spends on these activities.

If your teen works, use the opportunity to talk about expectations, responsibilities, and other ways of behaving respectfully in a public setting.

Talk with your teen and help him plan ahead for difficult or uncomfortable situations. Discuss what he can do if he is in a group and someone is using drugs or under pressure to have sex, or is offered a ride by someone who has been drinking.

Respect your teen’s need for privacy.

Encourage your teen to get enough sleep and exercise, and to eat healthy, balanced meals.
